B&E Goulandris Foundation presents the “Photis Kontoglou and his Influence on the Younger Generation” exhibition paying, in its own (unique) fashion, tribute to the 100 years since the Asia Minor Catastrophe. The Greek artist, born in Aivali, retained a “Greekness” in his work. Keeping true to the Byzantine style, Kontoglou transcribed it in both religious and everyday themes, avoiding the modernist ways of his time. Τhe exhibition is divided into seven sections with thirty-nine painters, some of them Kontoglou’s students, presented in a comparative manner against his original work. Among others, his mark can be detected in works of Yannis Moralis, Yannis Tsarouchis and Nikos Engonopoulos. If you don’t really see how that’s possible, not to worry, you are one of many, ourselves included, and which is probably the reason why the exhibition is accompanied by a 400-page catalogue.
