We stumbled on this little gem of a museum this afternoon. While I recognized some of the artist's works, I can't say that I knew anything about him before this. But after visiting his charming home and seeing his impressive array of art and commercial work, I am very interested in Spiros Vassiliou. A beautiful place, with a great little gift shop featuring copies of works by the artist.

This is one of those experiences that I am so grateful to other travellers who have pointed the way for me in the past. It is basically the house of a well known Greek artist called Spyros Vassiliou who both captured the beauty of Athens and also shaped the aesthetics of his time. I loved being able to enter into his universe in his lovely house right by the Acropolis currently run by his granddaughters. Photographs help give one a feeling of the Athens of his time with many local and international celebrities passing through his home. You can feel the parties that must have taken place here and experience the light that inspired the art which the house is full of. Standing by the artist's easel you can still feel his pleasant presence. As for his art - for me this is the art that of all his contemporaries most accurately reflects the beauty of the Athens urban landscape. A small shop provides a much needed alternative to the usual tacky tourist gifts.

This lovely little art gallery is situated in a small, quiet street very close to the Acropolis. Spiros Vassiliou's work is sensitively displayed on two floors. Spiro's granddaughter runs the gallery and as well as giving an interesting introduction is on hand to answer any questions whilst giving you the privacy to view the works on display at your own pace.

Someone in Technopolis recommended we head to the Spyros Vassiliou gallery and I am glad we made the trip. Hidden away down a residential street, the artists former house and studio has been turned into a museum by his family to celebrate one of Greece's most prolific artists.

We were treated to a private tour (by coincidence) by the artists granddaughter, who was able to give us fist hand accounts of the work and her memories attached to each. At present the gallery focuses on his family, but his granddaughter has recently taken over the museum and is planning to diversify the collection to put the work on the international stage where it rightly belongs. I particularly like the abstract works, where proportion is tampered with and familiar scenes are reduced to odd portals through floating windows and doors.

Interesting as it is, but definitely one to watch as there are big plans to expand and introduce other contemporary artists and curate exhibitions.

It is difficult to write a review of an attraction like the Spyros Vassiliou Atelier. If you know and like Spyros Vassiliou’s work, you will like this modest museum very much. If not, you might still enjoy it if modern non-abstract art appeals to you. If you are not in one of those categories, I don’t know that you would be interested.

Vassiliou is a well known and widely admired Greek artist and illustrator who was born in 1902 and died in 1985. Vassiliou did everything: fine art, art prints, magazine illustrations, tourist posters, theatre sets and backdrops, etc. He worked in oils and he worked in water colors. He was at his best cataloguing cityscape and everyday life, not heroic themes. During the German occupation, however, some of his prints celebrating human freedom circulated underground as symbols of resistance. In the second half of the 20th century, he catalogued the changing face of Athens as its old neo-classical buildings gave way to soulless apartment blocks.

This attraction is the two story apartment unit where he and his wife lived and raised their daughters and Spyros painted. It was well known as a place of hospitality among the artist and intellectual communities, and there is a famous Vassiliou painting of a party on the rooftop. A number of his paintings are displayed there, especially of his family. There is one of the paintings inspired by the popularity of the work known as “Aliki’s Lamp,” which is a favorite of mine. I merely toured and did not use the library they have there. There are a few publications (mostly but not all in Greek only) and posters for sale but no gift shop, bookstore, etc. It’s a small scale operation run by one person. My visit took about an hour but that included an interesting conversation with the young woman who works there to supplement her own income as an artist at a time of severe austerity in Greece. She was very nice and well informed.

The atelier is fairly close to the new Acropolis Museum. If you come by metro, you will see signs directing you to both, but you walk a long way without another sign, so that you begin wondering if you missed a turn. You probably haven’t - there will be a sign which directs you down into a residential neighborhood to your left.

Tip - I got there just after the opening hour of 10 AM and it was locked. Being no stranger to Greece, I asked the receptionist at the small hotel across the street if I could wait in their lobby. She said yes, I did so, and in a short time the staffer from the museum arrived.
