Goulandris art museum

The New Goulandris Art Museum in Athens
is Expected To Open On October 1, 2019.

As announced in a recent press conference by Fleurette Karadontis,
niece of the late Elise Goulandris and president
of the Basil andElise Goulandris Foundation,
the much awaited Goulandris museum will open
in just a few months, on October 1,
with a series of celebratory events.

Shipowner Basil Goulandris and his wife Elise
were active members of the art scene in Athens,
as well as in their second hometown, Paris.
In the latter, they were both awarded with the title
Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters,
in honor of their contributions to the arts.

Through their dedication to the arts and their travels,
they met and formed relationships with other
art collectors and artists, and over the years
they accumulated an incredible contemporary art collection – one
that includes masterpieces by artists accepted
as part of the canon of art history,
such as Pablo Picasso, Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh,
and Claude Monet, as well as many prominent Greek artists.
