Greek icons : 14th-18th century, the Rena Andreadis collection by Anastasia Drandaki( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From every point of view the Andreadis collection offers a panorama of Greek portable icons and an opportunity to discover the elements they have in common and the multiformity of expression which distinguishes them. It is a challenge which can only be met by linking the works to the equally confused and complex historical path of Hellenism throughout the same centuries."--Jacket
Heaven & earth( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 330 Emperor Constantine the Great moved the capital of the Roman Empire from Italy some thousand miles to the east, near the site of the ancient Greek city of Byzantium on the Bosphorus Strait linking the Aegean and Black Seas. Renamed Constantinople (now Istanbul), the city became the largest and wealthiest in the Christian world. It remained the dominant power, especially in the eastern Mediterranean, for more than 1,000 years until it fell to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. In the first-ever exhibition of Byzantine art at the Gallery, some 170 works of art, many never before lent to the United States, will be on view—among them mosaics, icons, manuscripts, jewelry, and ceramics. The works include newly discovered and unpublished objects and reveal the rich and multifaceted culture of Byzantium. Divided into five thematic sections, the exhibition explores the coexistence of paganism and Christianity, spiritual life in Byzantium, secular works of art used in the home, the intellectual life of Byzantine scholars, and the cross-influences that occurred between Byzantine and Western artists before the fall of Byzantium."

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In praise of shadows by Gaia Battaglioli( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Praise of Shadows revolves around shadows, shadow theatre and silhouettes as well as stories based on traditional folklore, contemporary short stories, literary works and simple narratives, all expressed with economy of means. The central metaphor of this book is the shadow theatre in Turkey and Greece, and the character Karagoz (in Turkey)/Karaghiozis (in Greece), an incorrigible trickster who has hundreds of adventures and misadventures with a varied group of characters. In addition to providing an in-depth explanation of this popular tradition, In Praise of Shadows also highlights some examples of great animation classics, namely the works of Ladislas Starewitch and Lotte Reiniger, as well as reinterpretations by noteworthy contemporary artists such as Haluk Akakce, Nathalie Djurberg, William Kentridge, Katariina Lillqvist, Jockum Nordstrom, Christiana Soulou, Andrew Vickery and Kara Walker." --Book Jacket

Relics of the past : treasures of the Greek Orthodox Church and the population exchange : the Benaki Museum collections = Reliques du passé : trésors de l'Église orthodoxe grecque et l'Échange de population : les collections du Musée Benaki by Anna Ballian( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sacred Christian art objects--including tabernacles, plates, bottles, bibs, votives, crosses, and more--reveal the amazing skill and creativity of Greek craftsmen living in the predominantly Muslim Ottoman Empire. Precious metals, like gold and silver, beautifully decorated with carvings, embossed, and adorned with precious stones like rubies and sapphires, are pictured here and analyzed in terms of historical and artistic significance. The objects come from the Greek Orthodox community living on what is now the Turkish coast, under the rule of the Ottoman Empire from the 14th through 17th centuries."--Amazon
From Byzantium to modern Greece : Hellenic art in adversity, 1453-1830 : from the collections of the Benaki Museum, Athens( Book )

Nelly : Dresden, Athens, New York : from the Photographic Archive of the Benaki Museum, Athens by Matthias Harder( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nelly was the pseudonym under which photographer Elli Souyoulzoglou-Seraidari (1899-1998) achieved fame for her work in Dresden, Athens and New York. This volume unites a selection of her finest portraits, nudes, dance stills, architecture photography and images of rural Greece. In the 1920s Nelly learned special techniques of photographic reproduction while working in Dresden with leading German photographers of the day, Hugo Erfurth and Franz Fiedler. Using these techniques, in particular the bromoil method, she was able to make photographs which closely resemble painted works. At this time she began making nudes and dance stills. On her return to Greece she opened a photo studio in Athens and created portraits of intellectuals, the rich and the beautiful in the Greek metropolis. She became the official national photographer of her country and her works were exhibited in the Greek booth at the world exhibition in New York in 1939. On the outbreak of World War II, Nelly remained in New York where her work developed a stronger urban, photo-journalistic character. In 1966, her creative activity having come to an end, she returned to Greece

Heads and tails - tales and bodies : engraving the human figure from Antiquity to the Early Modern period( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This event is part of 2016's 'Year of Greece in Russia' and 'Year of Russia in Greece', the main aim of which is to bring these two splendid and unprecedented cultures still closer together, by celebrating their shared cultural and religious values, and their rich historical heritage. Both publication and exhibition display and discusses extremely rare numismatic, glyptic and archaeological artifacts that are only very rarely presented to the public. Hence Heads and Tails - Tales and Bodies is an impressive gallery of masterpieces of miniature sculpture, such as coins, medals, plaquettes and statuettes, in which man always takes pride of place. The perception and depiction of the human figure by artists of different periods, the development of artistic styles, and the close links between the iconographic repertoire and mythology, religion, history, literature and philosophy of the Greater Greek World are themes well reflected by specialists in this publication. The publication and the exhibition focus on the Classical Antiquity to te Early Modern era, and have been made possible through the combined efforts of the Benaki Museum in Athens and the Greek Welfare Foundation for Social and Cultural Affairs (KIKPE), who initiated the preparation and realization of this ambitious exhibition project. Exhibition: The Pushkin Museum of Moscow, Russia (06.07. - 30.09.2016)
Navigating in the dark : Kalliopi Lemos by Kalliopi Lemos( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kalliopi Lemos is a Greek sculptor, painter and installation artist based in London. Lemos studied at the Byam Shaw School of Art and Central Saint Martins, where she pursued post-graduate studies. Central themes of Lemos' work include the narrative of journeys, displacement and the politics of forced migration. Navigating in the Dark documents a series of exhibitions of Lemos' work at three international venues: Benaki Museum, Athens, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete, Rethymnon and the Crypt of St Pancras Church, London. The three exhibitions were a culmination of Lemos' work over the past ten years, each exhibiting large-scale installations exploring themes of physical and spiritual migration. Navigating in the Dark presents full-colour images of the installations, depicting them alongside each other for the first time. Alongside photographic documentation, five texts explore Lemos' work and methodology. Arthur C Danto discusses each installation relating them to wider themes, in his essay "A Sculptural Navigation"; Jim Fitzgerald carefully observes each of the installations and their particular qualities, relating Lemos' work to her Greek heritage, whilst Simon Critchley presents the wider themes of the artist's work from a philosophical viewpoint in "Watergazing with Kalliopi Lemos". The book also includes an introduction by Curator Maria Maragou and a discussion between Lemos and theatre director Theodoros Terzopoulos."--Publisher's description
