Frissiras Museum [Museum Profile]

Where: Athens (3 & 7 Monis Asteriou St)

In a few words:
Frissiras Museum’s collections, made up exclusively of works centered on two axes: the human form and its representation, include paintings, designs, sculptures and engravings from renowned European and Greek artists.

 


Why:
The Frissiras Museum houses the private collection of its founder, Vlassis Frissiras. The attorney/art collector started collecting works by young Greek visual artists in 1978, with the aim of putting together a collection made up exclusively of paintings centered on two axes: the human form and its representation. In the ’90s his interest turned to European artists and by the year 2000 his large collection was finally housed in its current location, in the traditional neighbourhood of Plaka, close to the Acropolis.
