Opens the house of P. Tetsis to the public

Mar 10, 2017, 18:31

 

 

March 5, 2017 marked the first anniversary of the death of the great painter and academician Panagiotis Tetsis (1925-2016).
In 2007 the great artist had deeded to the Historical and Ethnological Society of Greece (National History Museum) the island home of grandparents in order to create a museum to house his studio and his works. It is open to the public everyday between 10:00 and 16:00 till October.
Tetsis lived on Hydra as a child, and in his grandparents’ house he first encountered painting and the art world. Since the late 1980s he worked in this old house, having turned the hall floor in the studio. The artists relationship to his homeland remained close and special to the end. He always conveyed his love for the island to the fine arts students whom he brought each year to Hydra, often hosting them in this house.
The house is typical of Hydra’s 19th- and 20th-century architectural principles, which indeed served and professional activities of the family housing on the ground floor a candlemaking workshop and a grocery shop/taverna.
The Historical and Ethnological Society, according to the will of the painter and the donor, maintained and enhanced the building as a whole, including the family home, the grocery store on the ground floor, and the wine storage are in the basement, as well as the studio of the painter and his works on the first floor. Today, the artist’s works and household objects (furniture, utensils, paintings, family photos, personal objects, archival material, studio material and contents of the store, packaging, scales, tools, candlemaking materials, etc.) are presented in a way to highlight the particular character of the whole.
The Tetsis Home and Studio, which is a short distance from the Kountouriotis House and the adjoining church of the Visitation, creates a small cultural center in a relatively remote neighborhood of Hydra Town with particularly remarkable buildings that illuminate various different aspects of the unique local tradition and history.
