Giulio Caimi, paintings

The Museum’s first modern art exhibition in its new premises was an exhibit of 14 paintings by the artist Giulio Caïmi. Born in Corfu, Greece, a student of folklore and aesthetics, contemporary and friend of many great men of Greek art and literature, Caïmi is recognised today as the intellectual painter who looked for the heritage of the Byzantine Empire in Greek Folk Art. The works were lent to the Museum by the Benrubi family.
