Discovering the Unseen Aspects of the G. I. Katsigras Collection

Artworks from notable representatives of Greek modern art, such as Agenor Asteriadis, Konstantinos Maleas, Nikiforos Lytras, Theofrastos Triantafyllidis and Tassos, are “re-introduced” through a multi-sensory approach that enriches the museum experience for all audience groups.
