Join us at the opening of the exhibition GENIUS LOCI – Ioannis Kissonerghis and British Landscape Painters

Aiming at illuminating the first steps of Cypriot art in the early 20th century, the exhibition, organised for the Hellenic Centre’s 25th Anniversary, 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, (Evelyn) May Chenevix Trench (1887-1977), Tristram Ellis (1844-1922) and others.

Opening: Wednesday 5 June, 7pm

Exhibition dates: 6 to 30 June
Entry: Free
