Watercolors of the Acropolis: Emile Gillieron in Athens
The masterly watercolor painter Emil Gillieron (1850–1924) became the most important draftsman and popularizer of archaeological discoveries in Greece after his arrival in Athens in the late 1870s.

Onexhibitionfive drawings are presented - three of them more than eleven feet long - which depict architectural sculptures from the Athenian Acropolis. In addition to their documentary value, the drawings reflect the power of mythological plots of ancient sculptures, their effect is enhanced by the preserved traces of the original color.
