Artworks painted by famous foreign artists such as Chagall, Monet, Renoir, Canaletto, Fragonard, as well as by Greek artists like Gyzis, Iakovidis, Volanakis, Pantazis, Parthenis, Gikas, Tsarouchis and Moralis will be exhibited at the National Pinacotheque of Greece before they get transferred permanently to the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia.
270 artworks will be exhibited from the 1st of March until the 3rd of June, 2013, that are part of the big collection of the A.G. Leventis Foundation.
The Greek audience will be the first to enjoy the first section of the exhibition, the so called ‘Paris Collection’ that it is being exhibited for the first time.
The attendees of the exhibition will have the opportunity to see 76 oil paintings and water-based paintings from the ‘Paris Collection’.
Next to the ‘Paris Collection’, 19th and 20th century Greek paintings as well as 20th century Cypriot paintings will be also exhibited.
The Greek section includes among others the following artworks: ‘Medea’ of Lytras, ‘Harmony’ of Gyzis and ‘Maternal Affection’ of Iakovidis.
The Cypriot section includes the artworks of eight Cypriot artists, with the great representative of arts Christoforos Savvas.
The presentation of the artworks will be held shortly after the recent theft at the National Pinacotheque of Greece, and thus the effective coordination of security measures will be essential.
