Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The great Greek artist Yannis Pappas (1913-2005) announced in April of 2002 that all the works gathered in his studio devolved to the Benaki Museum. This donation covered the greater part of the artist’s output from 1930 to the present.

In order for these works to remain in their natural environment, the artist’s son Alekos Pappas donated the studio building to the Benaki Museum.  As the artist himself wished, the studio remains a vital working space for the students of the Athens School of Fine Arts, and one section of it hosts a small permanent collection of his paintings. A minor extension to the building will enable it to meet all modern museological specifications, ensure the appropriate storage facilities and facilitate the flow of visitors.

This valuable contribution from one of the most significant representatives of artistic quests in interwar and postwar Greece assists the Benaki Museum in its effort to depict the panorama of the country’s modern creative activity and gradually to supplement the presentation of the cultural continuity of the Greeks.
