With more than 20.000 artworks, the National Gallery in Athens was established in 1900 and is considered the most important art museum in Greece. It stands out particularly for its nineteenth and twentieth century Greek painting and sculpture collection. The numerous art forms are exposed chronologically, and include paintings, sculptures, engravings, drawings and many other varieties from the post-Byzantine years to the present day. The museum’s central building remains closed for renovation work.
