El Greco’s paint­ing of the Apos­tles Pe­ter and Paul is dis­played at the Chris­tian and Byzan­tine Mu­seum in Athens as part of ‘The State Her­mitage Mu­seum: Gate­way to His­tory’ ex­hi­bi­tion, which opens to the pub­lic to­day. Run­ning to Fe­bru­ary next year, the tem­po­rary dis­play show­cases 80 pieces from the Rus­sian mu­seum’s per­ma­nent col­lec­tions, in­clud­ing an­tiq­ui­ties, paint­ings and sculp­tures. The ex­hi­bi­tion is the last event or­ga­nized by the Greek Min­istry of Cul­ture and the mu­seum within the ‘Rus­sian Year in Greece and the Greek Year in Rus­sia’ frame­work.
