Exhibition by Ioannis Kissonerghis and British Landscape painters.
The idea for this exhibition was initiated by the Curator of the Cyprus Collection, Dr Eleni S. Nikita, on the occasion of the agreement signed by the A. G. Leventis Gallery and the family of Ioannis Kissonerghis, whereby the family is offering their collection of works by Kissonerghis to the Gallery on a log-term loan.
Aiming at illuminating as clearly as possible the first steps of Cypriot art in the early 20th century, the exhibition will examine the relationship between Ioannis Kissonerghis and the landscape painting tradition created in Cyprus by traveller-artists, in particular British visitors or temporary residents of the island.
This connection will be traced in the works of such artists as William Hawkins (1845-1902), H. W. Seton-Karr (1858-1938), John Everett, Lady Meriel Edith Chenevix Trench (1890-1985), Tristram Ellis (1844-1922) and others.
The Chairman of the A. G. Leventis Foundation, Mr Anastasios P. Leventis, the Foundation’s Board of Trustees and the A. G. Leventis Gallery cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition on Wednesday 12 October 2016, at 18.30.
The exhibition will be inaugurated by the Mayor of Nicosia, Mr Constantinos Yiorkadjis.
