“15 years ago after visiting the museum of contemporary art Reina Sofia in Madrid I felt overwhelmed standing for the first time in front of Mirò and Picasso and admired the works of many great painters and artists of the 20th century.
Cubism, Expressionism, Surrealism… everything was there in front of me and opened a brand new world for me! Since then I always felt the need to go back!
Today, I feel very blessed about being given the chance to have in my own city a similar venue.
The Museum of Modern Art by the Goulandris Foundation is actually as beautiful as the works it exhibits: El Greco, Van Gogh, Mirò, Picasso, Botero, Gauguin, Cezanne, Bacon, Braque and some of the greatest contemporary Greek painters like Gaitis, Zouni, Fasianos, Kounellis, Tsarouchis and Gikas are waiting to be admired in a surrounding of high aesthetics worthy of hosting these unique masterpieces”
