Modern Greek Painters, Artists

Gradually the impressionists and other modern schools increased their influence. In the early 20th century Greek artists turned from Munich to Paris. The interest of Greek painters, artists changes from historical representations to Greek landscapes with an emphasis on light and colours so much abundant in Greece. Representatives of this artistic change are Konstantinos Parthenis, Konstantinos Maleas, Nicolaos Lytras and Georgios Bouzianis. K. Parthenis, in particular, introduces historical, religious and mythological elements that allow the classification of Greek painting into modern art. The same is true with the landscapes of K. Maleas and the expressionism of G. Bouzianis.  The period of 1930’s was a landmark for the Greek painters, with Yiannis Tsarouchis, Yiannis Moralis, Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas, Spyros Vassileiou, Alekos Kontopoulos (introduced abstraction in Greek paintings) and Spyros Papaloukas coming into the limelight of Greek Art. These painters tried mainly to combine leading European trends with Greek tradition.
