Greece – Art, Athens pays tribute to Leonardo Cremonini

There is time until 11 February to visit the exhibition “Gli allievi greci di Leonardo Cremonini” (“The Greek Pupils of Leonardo Cremonini”), now on show in Athens. The exhibition pays tribute to the great Italian artist widely known in Greece, where he held numerous exhibitions. The show will be hosted at the Italian Cultural Institute in Athens (Patission 47) which has promoted a number of guided tours: the next is scheduled for Wednesday, 18 January at 6 p.m. Visitors will be guided by Eurydice Trichon-Milsani, Art History professor at the Paris Sorbonne University, who designed and curated the exhibition. The Bologna-born painter and promoter of the “New Figuration” art movement was the only contemporary Italian artist to have been appreciated by English painter Francis Bacon and died after a long illness at 85 in Paris in 2010, where he had been living since 1951. The collective exhibition includes many more artists: Alexis Veroukas, Stefanos Daskalakis, Eirini Iliopoulou, Kelly Mendrinou, Konstantinos Ntaoulas, Giorgos Rorris, Edoardo Sacallian, Anna Maria Tsakali, Maria Filopoulou, Evita Frantzola, and Viky Chatzilakou.
