Modern Greek printmaking travels to London

A prestigious exhibition will be held in London featuring prints by leading Greek artists from the collection of Yannis Papaconstantinou, a collection that is concidered to be one of the best in Greece.

The Greek Presidency of the EU Council in cooperation with the European Commission Representation in London, the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, UK presents the exhibition Modern Greek Printmaking: Selected works from the Yannis Papaconstantinou Collection. The exhibition is organized under the auspices of the Embassy of Greece and is part of the HFC’s Greece in Britain series of events, illustrating the wealth and diversity of contemporary Greek culture.

Featuring prints by forty five leading 20th century Greek artists, this exhibition will include woodcuts, copper engravings, etchings, lithographs and lino cuts -some of them rare- from the collection of Yannis Papaconstantinou, who has curated the show. Representative of the major artists and trends in 20th century Greek printmaking, the selection on display is drawn from one of the most important private Greek print collections which encompasses more than 1,000 works by 250 Greek artists of the 19th and 20th century.
