Evita Arapoglou, “Niko Ghika, John Craxton, Patrick Leigh Fermor: Charmed Lives in Greece”

May 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This lecture, by author and art historian Evita Arapoglou, will present the life and work of Greek painter Niko Ghika (Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika), British painter John Craxton, and the British writer Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor, who all made homes in Greece. Meeting at the end of World War II, the three men formed a friendship that would endure to the end of their lives. They shared an interest and passion for Hellenistic culture and contributed to what is now understood to be “a golden age of Anglo-Greek artistic and literary collaboration.”
