Inside the gallery, visitors have the opportunity to see some of the most representative works of Greek modern art. Works of Fotis Kontoglou, Spyros Vassiliou, N. Hadzikyriakos-Gikas, Yannis Spiropoulos and of other prominent Greek artists are featured here, in this highly representative museum of the 20th-century Greek art. Although the museum owns about 690 pieces, only 90 of them are available to public disposal.
The founder of the Municipal Art Gallery of Rhodes was Andreas Ioannou, a historian of Modern Greek Art and the Prefect of the Dodecanese in 1948. Studying the modern Greek art since the 1950s, in a time when even the National Gallery of Athens would focus its interest in the 19th century, Andreas Ioannou established this gallery with the aim to systematically own and protect the work of modern artists.
