Hellenic Navy: History and Art
The publication entitled “Hellenic Navy: History and Art”, the result of a collaboration between the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation and the Hellenic Navy General Staff, aims to highlight the Naval Epic through more than 170 works of art belonging to the collections of the Hellenic Navy.
Works by important artists, such as Konstantinos Volanakis and Emilios Prosalentis, but also by younger ones, such as Panagiotis Tetsis, are largely unknown, while most of them are presented for the first time to the general public. Specifically, the paintings depict important maritime events, the ships of the Greeks and the protagonists of the Naval Epic from antiquity to the present day. The publication also includes the sculptures concerning the glorious forms of the our naval history and the hagiography of the Holy Church of Agios Demetrios in the Naval Fort Skaramangas, a unique monument of our modern civilization.
