National Gallery, 04/12/2008-22/03/2009


The roughly 200 paintings on display at the National Gallery of Greece are but a fraction of the enormous collection of the National Bank of Greece, which comprises upwards of 2,500 works. The exhibition featured a series of portraits of the bank’s Governors made by famous artists. They were selected for their historical importance and aesthetic merit in order to trace without gaps, to the extent possible, the history of Modern Greek art.
