Manolis Charos. Aesop’s Fables

The exhibition focuses on Manolis Charos’s take on Aesop’s Fables – contemporary paintings and engravings by the artist with themes from Aesop’s Fables, which also contain references to the manner in which those fables were transformed into images over the past 2500 years.
After many years researching his topic in libraries, collections and marketplaces in Europe and the U.S., the artist discovered the images, the main figures and the representations of the fables, as they were presented through time, communicating different messages, according to the habits of each era, but always preserving the poetry of the transition, as well as the direct narrative which is so well known.
