NATIONAL ART GALLERY Polychronis Lembesis - Nude
But at the same time that a school of painting, influenced by Munich, was being created in Greece, a few Greek painters studied in Paris, residing in the French capital, and despite following the guide-lines of the Academy, gave their own interpretation to the perception of things. Iakovos Rizos was involved with the rendering of female grace, Theodoros Rallis with scenes from the Orthodox East and Nikolaos Xydias with portraiture, still life and genre painting. During this period in Paris the avant garde Impressionist movement developed, but Greek painters remained faithful to the precepts of their teachers with only some nebulous thrusts in the direction of this movement. The only ex-ception was Pericles Pantazis who, after Paris, finally settled in Belgium and became a part of the avant-garde groups there.
