The G.I. Katsigras Collection

G.I. Katsigras was a doctor and avid art collector. His art collection, which he bequeathed to the Greek State, is normally housed at the Municipal Museum in Larissa

but is currently exhibited at the Theocharakis Foundation on Vas. Sofias Avenue in Athens

But first, a look at the sculpture outside the museum which is by Vassilis Theocharakis, sculptor and owner of the museum

the bench by Alekos Fassianos

the second bench, also by Alekos Fassianos

the shop is to your right in the lobby

as is this glass sculpture by Kostas Varotsos, whose sculpture The Runner has transformed Vas. Sofias Avenue

Man Harvesting, Umvertos Argyros

Theofrastos Triantafyllides, Excursion to Galatsi

 Konstantinos Maleas, Laurio

 Konstantinos Maleas, Delfi

Nikolaos Lytras, Ymittos

George Gounaropoulos, Bridge on the Seine

 Theofrastos Triantaphyllides, Girl with turkeys

Yannis Psychopedis, Demonstration

Yannis Morales, Landscape

Epaminondas Thomopoulos, The Sheperdess

Theofrastos Triantafyllides, The Violinist

and now it is time to leave. Isn't this floor amazing?  Doesn't it look like reflections on water?


  1. Interesting paintings...I must get my paints out again now that the class has finished. Too easy to stop without the incentive of the group. Though today I took one of my pieces to be framed, decided to be more confident about my work.

  3. Love the floor. Best not to dive in perhaps?
