This issue is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great artist, Yannis Moralis.

Yannis Moralis is one of the most distinguished 20th century Greek artists and part of the so-called "Generation of the '30s”, a group of Greek artists most active after World War II, who combined folk and modern artistic elements in the quest for “Greekness”. Moralis’ influences ranged from Greek art and Byzantine iconography to neoclassicism, romanticism and realism. He delved into the timeless topics of love and the agony of death. The main subject of his work was the human form, particularly the female. The academic approach of his early career gave way in the '50s to more abstract formulations. In a quest for harmony and balance, in accordance with the fundamental spirit of classical antiquity, Moralis selected geometry as the ideal means of rendering space and the figures which inhabit it. Rhythm, order, a shunning of detail and description, and the simple palette which he gradually imposed in the course of an organic evolution underscore an archaic sense of grandeur and fullness.
