Kapralos Museum Aegina

The six halls of Christos Kapralos’ workshop in Plakakia district, Aegina, began operating as a museum in 1995, two years after the sculptor’s death. In 2006, the Christos and Souli Kapralos Foundation, via a Presidential Decree and after the unanimous decision of its Board of Trustees, became part of the National Gallery – Alexandros Soutsos Museum; since then, the Christos Kapralos Museum has been operating as an annex of the National Gallery. In its halls and outdoor areas are housed and installed wooden, stone and marble sculptures, as well as paintings, all created by the sculptor on Aegina. A number of his terracotta and bronze figurines are also on display. Among the most important exhibits are the plaster cast of Kapralos’ forty-meter porous-stone frieze The Monument to the Battle of Pindos (1952-1956), as well as the wooden complex Parody from the Pediment of Olympia (1971-1972).
