(Theophilos : Works from the Collection of the Emporiki Bank)
The exhibition contains a group of twenty paintings from the art collection of the Emporiki Bank of Greece. It offers the public an opportunity to see up-close a representative sample of the oeuvre of this painter from Mytilene, which records in his characteristic manner his involvement with painting. 
The works in the collection include a selection of the usual themes chosen by Theophilos Hadjimichael: scenes from history or mythology; images taken from postcards and old lithographs or photographs; landscapes; and images of everyday life. 
The collection of these twenty works by Theophilos, shown in the exhibition, belongs to the Emporiki Bank of Greece since the 1980s and, with rare exceptions, this is the first time it will be shown to the public in its entirety. 
The exhibition is accompanied by the Emporiki Bank of Greece’s publication Theophilos (Athens, 1967), edited by Yannis Tsarouchis and Yiorgos Manousakis and with texts by Yannis Tsarouchis, a publication that brings together over 300 works by the artist. 

Throughout the duration of the exhibition there will be showings of the special tribute filmed for the series Paraskinio (Backstage), entitled "2003 – Theophilos Again?", directed by Lakis Papastathis.
