About the Artist:
Yiannis Moralis (1916 – 2009) was one of the most prominent Greek artists of the last century. His election as a professor at the Athens School of Fine Arts and his teaching work there, for 35 consecutive years, proved to be decisive for a number of choices and directions of the 20th century’s Greek art production.
An artist myth of the 20th Century (1916 – 2009)
The absolute geometricity of structure, the balance that results from the juxtaposition of lines and shapes, the economy of colour of his earthy palette, and the austerity of design are features that defined Yannis Moralis from very early on. Over time, his art shifted towards a geometrical simplification, eliminating superfluous details from the composition and, in his mature period, his subject matters become, almost exclusively, clusters of women and men, with the focus always on the female figure. – Nicolas Paissios, 2019 –
