    In the presence of his Austrian counterpart, the President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias inaugurated the exhibition "Antiquity and Modern Art. Reminiscences of Antiquity in Modern Greek Art" at the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna. The exhibition hosts 53 works of great Greek artists.

    The exhibition will remain open until 24 August and is being presented on the occasion of Mr Papoulias four-day official visit that is concluding this afternoon with his visit to Saltsburg. Mr Papoullias will be accompanied by Mr Fischer and a Greek delegation.

    The Greek President, who is accompanied by Culture minister Michalis Liapis, deputy Foreign Minister Yannis Valynakis and a Greek delegation comprising government officials and Greek businessmen, arrived in Vienna on Wednesday evening for a four-day official visit, reciprocating a state visit by Fischer to Athens in May last year.

    The Greek president had separate meetings with Vienna mayor Michael Haupl, and Austrian parliament (National Council) president Barbara Prammer, the parliaments first woman president.

    He also met with Metropolitan Michael of Austria and the Ecumenical Patriarchates Exarch of Hungary and Middle Europe, at the Holy Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Austria, which houses the historic Greek National School of Vienna, the oldest Greek school abroad.

    The National Gallery of Greece in collaboration with the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation, are organizing the exhibition "Antiquity and Modern Art. Reminiscences of Antiquity in Modern Greek Art" at the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna. The exhibition is under the auspices of the Greek Embassy in Vienna in the context of the official visit of President of Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias, who will inaugurate the exhibition, which will run through August 24.

    The exhibition, which comprises 53 works of art, aspires to present the reception of the classical spirit of ancient Greece (ideas, themes, figures) by modern Greek artists, the ways in which they have been inspired by it, as well as the ways in which they represented it in their art during the 20th century.

    According to the organizers, with the exception of Constantine Parthenis (1878-1967), who belongs to an older generation, the major painters of this exhibition are representatives of the famous Thirties Generation and its spirit: Ghika, Tsarouhis, Moralis, Nicolaou, Engonopoulos, and Vassileiou, as well as Fassianos, a younger inheritor of the same tradition.
