Curator Hélène Reeb, writes about ‘Greek and Cypriot printmakers in France (1920-2000)’: “One part of the exhibition presents works by printmakers of Greek and Cypriot origin, who lived for a few years during their studies or for most of their lives in France, most of them in Paris. These prints, created in France, reflect the trends in French printmaking at the time the artists studied or lived there, while their inspiration reveals the artists’ inner world, both French and Greek. Another part of the exhibition includes some prints by leading artists created in Greece at the end of the 20th century, some years after their studies in Paris.”
