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.
