An exhibition of plates illustrating scenes from the Greek War of Independence.

Curators: Natasha Lemos, Olympia Pappa

Design: Αlexis Veroucas

Organised by the Hellenic Centre under the aegis of the Greece 2021 Committee.  Sponsored by the A G Leventis Foundation.


1821 Το Οραμα της Λευτεριάς: Με το χέρι του Ζωγράφου, με το στοχασμό του Μακρυγιάννη

Η έκθεση παρουσιάζει την σπάνια συλλεκτική σειρά με σκηνές από την Ελληνική Επανάσταση που εξέδωσαν ο Frédéric Boissonas και ο Ιωάννης Γεννάδιος το 1926. Η σειρά αντιγράφει πιστά τις σκηνές που διάλεξε ο στρατηγός Μακρυγιάννης και που εικονογράφησε κατά παραγγελία του ο Δημήτριος Ζωγράφος από το 1836 μέχρι το 1839.

Επιμέλεια Έκθεσης: Νατάσα Λαιμού, Ολυμπία Παππά

Σχεδιασμός: Αλέξης Βερούκας

Η έκθεση οργανώνεται από το Ελληνικό Κέντρο του Λονδίνου υπό την αιγίδα της Επιτροπής Ελλάδα 2021 με την χορηγία του Ίδρυματoς Α. Γ. Λεβέντη.
