Through the display of works of art, extracts from texts, photographs, letters, manuscripts and publications, we follow their relationship and their artistic and literary careers, with their love of Greece always a common denominator.
As well as giving a chronological account, the exhibition plays on the theme of the places which inspired them – Hydra, Kardamyli, Crete and Corfu – and where they found hospitable settings to live and create.
Most of the artworks belong to the Ghika Gallery of the Benaki Museum and the Craxton Estate in London, but also from Museums and private collections in Greece and abroad.
The exhibition will travel afterwards at the British Museum in London and is accompanied by a bilingual publication with texts by the editors and an abundant photographic material.
