Have a nice school year 2008-09

My dearest friends,

September ante portas... I send you my warmest wishes for an amazing new school year 2008-09 with a slide show about paintings of Nikolaos Gyzis (1842-1901). He is a Greek painter , who was born on Tinos island, studied and died in Munich Some of his famous works are:

Eros and the Paintress Historia
Engagement Koo-Koo game Learning by heart Secret School

  • Eros and the Paintress, shows a rather middle age woman (paintress) who concentrates on painting a young boy,

  • Historia, a color lithographic poster which was first used in 1892 for the 6th International Art Exhibition in the Munich Glass Palace. Secession. The central image, which was repeatedly used on posters advertising the Munich Artist Group's salons and international art exhibitions, is an allegory on the nature of artistic tradition passing from one generation to another.
  • The Engagement,
  • The Secret School,
  • Koo-koo game
  • Learning by heart

Gyzis paintings range from Naturalistic genre scenes and still lifes to Secession style allegories. In the following video the major of his paintings are included. Enjoy it!!!!



P.S. We would like to visit Munich this year in the framework of a partnership!!!

Thoughts and thanks before the end

At first let's have a wonderful and joyful May!!!

But without no doubt the most delightful month of this project was April 2008!

Already we had been known and in April we met each other face-to-face.

The trip to Barcelona will be unforgetable. We were waiting for a lot of experiences there and we already have felt more!

My dear friends Cati, Antonis, Mariana and Rosa, we thank you very much for your efforts according to the blog and especially to our meeting to Barcelona and Athens. I am very sorry that I hadn't the chance to meet Rosa in Barcelona and I am very glad for Mariana's coming to Athens and Greece for the Easter's holidays. I have tied you to my heart so I 'll never lose you!

Dear Albert, Angueliki, Laura, Marta, Roser, and Toni from Joan Maragall at Badalona and Ana from Liviu Rebreanu / Mioveni, dear students from Spain, France, Romania and Greece I wish the best for you. It was so nice to meet you! I will be looking at your texts, your photographs and your gifts and many sweet thoughts will be coming back in my mind!


More in few days....
