  • [01] Icons by noted 15th century artist on display at Benaki Museum

    (ANA-MPA) -- A retrospective exhibition of works by late medieval icon painter Angelos Akotantos, entitled "The Hand of Angelos", will be on display at Athens' Benaki Museum as of Nov. 16, 2010 through Jan. 16, 2011.

    Akotantos was a noted icon painter of the post Byzantine period, who lived on Venetian-era Crete in the first half of the 15th century.

    Roughly 30 of his works have been preserved, while an additional 20 icons are believed to be his work as well.

    Akotantos' hand-written will has also been preserved along with a number of documents that bring into focus the artist's personality.
