  • [01] Engonopoulos work auctioned off inThessaloniki

    One of the hard to find works by poet and painter Nikos Engonopoulos (1907-1985) was sold for 29,000 euros at an auction held Monday in Thessaloniki organized by "Hellenic Auctions" in cooperation with the "Thermaides" NGO Thessaloniki branch. A starting price for "Melpomeni, the Muse of Tragedy" (41cm x 28cm) had been set at 8,000 euros and several bids were made for the painting, which finally fetched 29,000 euros. Other artworks auctioned off at a high price were "Monastary of Kesariani" by Papaloukas (17,000 euros), "Girl behind the curtain" by Sikeliotis (4,500 euros), "Corfu" by Hatzikyriakos-Ghikas (4,500 euros), and "Acropolis" by Maleas (12,000 euros).

    The auction was dedicated to Engonopoulos on the 100th anniversary of his birth, and part of the proceeds will be used by the Thermaides NGO to establish a children's cardiology unit at Thessaloniki's AHEPA Hospital.
