The Alpha Bank Art Collection comprises more than 5,000 works, primarily of contemporary Greek art. These works come from the Collections of the Credit Bank, the Ionian Bank and the Popular Bank and are representative of Modern Greek art from 1880 to the present. They are paintings by the most prominent Greek artists who have left their mark on the course of Greek art in all its important phases from the time of the School of Munich (1880-1910), the significant mid-war period (1920-1940) and also contemporary artistic creation dated after 1960.
At the same time the Bank possesses one of the most complete collections of Greek prints, which also includes folios, books and material from the domain of the graphic arts.
The Collection owns a significant corpus of maps and prints by foreign artists who have taken Greece as the subject of their work. These works date from the 16 to the 19 century.
Many of the works in the Collection have been placed in the Branches of the Bank and in areas where they are accessible to the public.
The activities of the Art Collection Section involve the organisation of touring exhibitions in the entire Greek region as well as publications of books and albums associated with the works of art of the Collection.
