Art resisting dictatorship

The exhibition includes works created by 4 renowned Greek artists of the post-war era:

  • Vlassis Caniaris
  • Dimitris Alithinos
  • Vaso Katraki
  • A. Tassos

All the exhibits were featured in exhibitions during the junta period or shortly after. They symbolise resistance and opposition, hope and democracy.

The exhibition is held under the patronage of the President of the Hellenic Republic, Ms Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

A. Tassos in a nutshell

A. Tassos (Anastasios Alevizos, 1914-1985) was born in Lefkochora, Messinia. He studied Painting and Engraving at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Besides engraving, he also worked extensively and very successfully in graphic arts.

He drew inspiration from the Greek landscape, but also urban life. The common denominator in all his works was the element of social sensitivity.

The Alpha Bank Art Collection includes the works Epitaph and Noon by A. Tassos.
