Χειρ Αγγέλου
Ένας ζωγράφος εικόνων στη Βενετοκρατούμενη Κρήτη
(The Hand of Angelos : An icon-painter in Venetian Crete)
The exhibition presents the work of a renowned 15th-century painter, Angelos Akotantos, who lived in Venetian-held Crete. The artist was a prominent member of society during his life and a significant number of icons bearing the signature The Hand of Angelos has been preserved, along with his hand-written will, which brings into focus his personality. Seeking the context for Angelos the painter, insight is provided about the art of Constantinople circa 1400, through icons and illustrated manuscripts; and the movements of painters from the capital of the Byzantine Empire to Crete, in search of safer conditions for their artistic endeavours. 
The exhibition is curated by Maria Vassilaki, Professor of Byzantine Art at the University of Thessaly.
