The Be­naki Mu­seum’s Pireos Street an­nex presents a ret­ro­spec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion on the great Greek pain­ter Yian­nis Mo­ralis (19162009), or­ga­nized in co­op­er­a­tion with the Greek Na­tional Gallery, the Cul­tural Foun­da­tion of the Na­tional Bank of Greece and Zoum­boulakis Gal­leries, with the sup­port of the pain­ter’s fam­ily. One of the coun­try’s lead­ing 20th-cen­tury artists, Mo­ralis was a pain­ter, print-maker, set de­signer and teacher, and ex­celled in all his dif­fer­ent ca­pac­i­ties. Bring­ing to­gether paint­ings, sculp­tures, ar­chi­tec­tural com­mis­sions, record cov­ers and book il­lus­tra­tions, the show sheds light on his re­mark­able evo­lu­tion as an artist as well as on his pri­vate life. Open­ing hours are Thurs­days and Sun­days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Fri­days and Satur­days from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Be­naki Mu­seum, 138 Pireos & An­dronikou, Tavros, tel 210.345.3111, www.be­naki.gr
