An exhibit of works by noted Greek painter Yannis Tsarouchis (1910-1989) is being relocated to the Benaki Museum after suspension of the private Tsarouchis Museum’s operation due to lack of funding, which relied mostly on ticket sales.
The exhibition opens on Friday at the Benaki Museum’s annex at 138 Pireos St., where the artist’s drawings and paintings will be housed following the closure of his private museum.
The Benaki exhibition, titled Yannis Tsarouchis Studies on 17 Themes, aims to reveal part of the process that the artist followed to complete his paintings.
Tsarouchis designed and built a two-storey house in the northern Athens district of Maroussi to house his archives and collections, setting up a foundation to run the facility, which went on for 30 years.
The exhibition will run until March 31, 2013.
