Students of the HELIOS Programme visited the new building complex of the National Gallery in Athens, taking pleasure in a guided journey through the history of modern Greek art. They enjoyed the works of the post-Byzantine period, the Cretan and Ionian School, Greek modernism, as well as collections of Western European painters, followed by a discussion on Greek art history, which offered the students the opportunity to share information about art in their country.
