Visit to the National Art Gallery
On March 4, 2010 our students from Intermediate II class went to the National Art Gallery.
They visited the Gallery’s permanent collection and admired the works of well known Greek and foreign painters from the 14th-20th century. Our students had the opportunity to observe how Greek art was influenced by artistic movements worldwide.
For many, the highlight of the visit was seeing the paintings of El Greco and the major representatives of the School of Munich: Nikephoros Lytras, Nikolaos Gysis, Georgios Iakovidis, and Konstantinos Volanakis, among others.
At the end of the visit, our students talked in Greek about their impressions of the collection in the Gallery's cafeteria. This visit definitely enriched the knowledge that our students had for Modern Greek Art. So, classes ended in the most pleasant and constructive way.
