Ioannis Altamuras. His life and work

A major retrospective focusing on the life and oeuvre of distinguished painter Ioannes Altamouras (Jean Altamura) (1852-1878).
Through his paintings, historical documents as well as his personal objects, the Greek public will have an opportunity to become acquainted with the work of a particularly gifted artist who died when he was only 26 years old.
To be precise, the exhibition will also show works by the Altamura family, his parents Saverio Altamura and Eleni Boukoura-Altamura, as well as his brother Alessandro Altamura.
The exhibition includes four different films focusing on the Altamura family and the artist's descendants and is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue.
The exhibition is curated by art historian Eleni Kypraiou, who with the assistance of the Danish Arts Agency followed in Jean Altamura's footsteps, tracing his studies and life in Jutland.
