“THE BYZANTINE WORLD” of Elias Kontozamanis

09 May 2017 until 02 July 2017

The Byzantine and Christian Museum hosts the exhibition “The Byzantine World” of Elias Kontozamanis.

The exhibition illuminates the personal painting approach of the historical narrative of a thousand year empire, the Eastern Roman Empire.

In the painting displayed, emerge the faces of real people portraying historical figures of the Byzantine era: emperors, kings and princesses, soldiers, philosophers and patriarchs, scientists, doctors, even fishermen, ferrymen and coppersmiths.

The exhibition presents 62 paintings in oil and tempera.
