National Gallery, Athens Overview

The National Gallery or the Alexandros Soutzos Museum is the most important museum of Greek art and focuses primarily on post-Byzantine Greek art from the 14th to the 20th century. Opened in 1900, it is situated in the Pangrati district of Athens. It can be reached through Metro at the Evangelismos station.

The National Gallery of Athens was established by the lawyer and art-lover Alexandros Soutzos. The museum is home to over 20,000 artworks, many of which belong to the Renaissance era, such as The Adoration of the Shepherds by Jacob Jordaens and Ahasuerus by Luca Giordano. It also has works by 17th to 20th-century European artists such as Pablo Picasso (Composition), Rembrandt and Jacques Linard (Still Life), and 19th and 20th-century Greek artists like Yannis Tsarouchis, Georges Jakovides and Spyros Vassiliou. There is a gift shop here too. The National Glyptotheque, a sculpture museum that is part of the National Gallery, is located in the Goudi neighbourhood of Athens.
