The Hellenic Centre is a vibrant cultural organisation founded in 1994 as a charity, with the aims of providing a focus for the Hellenic community, promoting an awareness of Hellenic culture in the UK and nurturing the unique relationship between Britain and the Hellenic world. The Centre offers a rich programme of lectures, exhibitions, concerts, social events and Greek language courses.
The Centre's elegant building dates from the early 1900s and has been sympathetically refurbished to provide a number of meeting and exhibition rooms, the most impressive of which is the Great Hall. The location and its facilities make it also an attractive venue for outside individuals and organisations to hold their events. The Centre is off Marylebone High Street in central London and is easily accessible.
The Hellenic Centre is run by a full-time director and her administrative staff, overseen by the Trustees and their Executive Board.
Director: Agatha Kalisperas
Tuesday 14 January, 7.15pm- Great Hall, Hellenic Centre
An illustrated lecture in English by Dr Claire Brisby, Courtauld Institute of Art. The lecture shows how an unknown collection of prints in a Balkan icon-painters’ archive illuminates our understanding of Greek religious engravings and painters’ use of them in their work.
It discusses how their imagery explains the reasons for their production and reflects the impact of their publication in the central European centres of Vienna and Venice on their assimilation of western imagery. Particular focus is given to the fragmentary evidence of prints of two Orthodox engravings which sheds light on painters’ use of prints as sources of innovative iconography, and leads to the conclusion that the role of visual prototypes should be recognised as an integral part of their intended function.
