Giorgos Gounaropoulos (also known as G. Gounaro) was a renowned Greek painter who lived from 1890 to 1977. His unique surrealistic style which was initially influenced by impressionism is famous for its illusionary and romantic elements and highly inspired by the ancient Greek art.
The Museum was established in 1978 when Elias Gounaropoulos kindly donated his father’s atelier and a large part of his works to the Municipality of Zografos. Beyond its permanent exhibition which includes oil paintings and sketches made by G. Gounaro, the museum also hosts temporary thematic exhibitions of emerging artists. The museum organizes free individual guided tours for adults and educational programmes for school students who want to get acquainted with the work of Gounaro; interactive storytelling, video presentations, art workshops for children are to name but a few of the available activities.
Next to the atelier stands the Art and Culture Centre which was erected in 1990 and complements the museum’s exhibition. The Art and Culture Centre is used for art exhibitions, lectures, concerts and several other musical and cultural events.
The museum is open from Tuesday to Wednesday 09:00 - 13:30 and 17:00 - 20:00 and during the summer months from 18:00 - 21:00 and from Thursday to Saturday from 09:00 - 15:00.
