Konstantinos Parthenis was a distinguished Greek painter born, in Alexandria, on this day in 1878. His cosmopolitan background (Italy, Vienna, Paris) seems to have played a role in the development of his eclectic style.
In later times his mature paintings provide an ideal vision of
Greece intertwining its myths and history; the Olympian deities, the Byzantine saints and the heroes of the Greek War of Independence.
