  • [01] PM invited by Obama and Merkel

    Prime Minister George Papandreou will visit Berlin on March 5 following an invitation by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, it was announced on Friday.

    Papandreou also received an invitation from US President Barack Obama on Thursday to visit Washington on March 9. Government spokesman George Petalotis said in Thursday that Prime Minister George Papandreou will be meeting US President Barack Obama in March. Petalotis said that the US president invited the Greek prime minister to visit the US on March 9, stressing that the exact date will be fixed through diplomatic channels.

    "In the very difficult conjuncture that we are in, such an inernational contact is very important," the spokesman added.

    [02] El Greco masterpiece in Thessaloniki

    One of the later masterpieces painted by Greek artist Domenicus Theotokopoulos - a Spanish Renaissance painter, sculptor and architect who was better known by the nickname El Greco - is to be exhibited at the Teloglion Foundation of Arts at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for two months after March 8.

    The painting is a 57 x 79.3 cm oil on canvas of the "Coronation of the Virgin" and dates to what is considered the artist's mature creative period (1603-1605). El Greco painted this as a study for a similar composition commissioned for a chapel in a hospital near Toledo dedicated to the Virgin.

    It was acquired by the 'Alexandros S. Onassis' Foundation in 2008 and is temporarily housed in the National Gallery until the completion of the foundation's 'Home of Arts and Letters' on Syngrou Avenue, where it will eventually be placed on display on a permanent basis, alongside the other works in the Onassis Foundation collection.
