NIKOLAOS GYSIS (1842-1901)

Nikolaos Gysis, one of the finest modern Greek painters,

was born on the island of Tinos but grew up in Athens,

where he attended classes at the Athens School of Fine

Arts. In 1865, he received a scholarship to study at the

renowned Munich Academy of Fine Arts, where he

mastered a flawless technique and the tenets of academic

realism. He spent most of his life in Munich, where he

became full professor at the Academy, returning to Greece

only occasionally. His journey to Asia Minor with fellow

artist Nikephoros Lytras enriched his palette and shifted

his focus to Greek genre themes. The output of his later

years became more poetic and idealistic, often inspired by

Greek mythology and religious themes, with a discernible

influence of symbolism.
