Abstract

The subject of the exhibition is the role of symbols in politics and art, the influence of antiquity on the image of the Greek Revolution and the philhellenic movement: the figures of Napoleon and Botsaris intersect with those of Leonidas and Alexander the Great. In this exhibition the paintings of Delacroix, David, Lipparini, the subject of Botsaris’ death, as well as two unknown manuscripts about a campaign of Napoleon in Epirus, which never took place, or about Ali Pasha and his actions, are the most important works and items that will be exhibited in the Teloglion Fine Arts Foundation, in lesser-known contexts, highlighting special (unknown) aspects in Greek-French history. Curator: Pavlos Thanopoulos.
