  • Description

     For the first time,readers can acces information about Greek naif painters in English.

    Explore the world of Greek naive painting through the eyes of professor Stelios Lydakis, whose narrative accompanies the work of the painters presented here.

    The exponents of Greek naive painting included generally share a nostalgia for the 'paradise lost' of childhood, rekinding the age of innocence in their paintings.

    The resulting works stand out for their unparalleled warmth.Others are

    inspired by historical events or social and political mores.Many are self taught, or started painting late in life, yet whatever their background or education, all share the characteristicks of the naif painter - a pure spiritual, child-like approach.

    276 color illustrations, a bibliography, index and dictionary of Greek naif painters make this book on Greek naive painting a unique contribution to the existing  bibliography on this fascinating, highly diverse, often intensely personal, art form.
