About this Item

"It is in this light that the Commercial Bank of Greece presents the folk of folk artist, Theophilos Hadzimichael. It object is to afford an opportunity to a wide circle of art-lovers, in Greece and abroad, to form a more comprehensive idea of genuinely Greek works of art, and appreciate and enjoy them. It is easy to discern that this self-taught creative genius does not coldly reproduce his typically Greek subjects. He does something more: he transforms them creatively, transubstantiating them by his rare artistic perception until, as one might say, he has brought them to life and inspired them with the very soul of Greece. It is well known that this poor and humble artist hade a life full of hurts and humiliations. One is astonished at his spiritual strength and his unshaken faith in his mission which he accepted with lofty pride, and carried out without help or recognition, and tragically alone, with the cheapest means. His draughtsmanship is indeed unique, equally astonishing is his use of colour in his wonderful and original compositions." This book contains 305 plates both color and black-and-white.
