At the National Gallery in Athens, The National Art Gallery-Alexander Soutzos Museum and the A. G. Leventis Foundation have collaborated to organise the exhibition ‘From the Collections of the A. G. Leventis Foundation’.
Presented together for the first time in their history, the art collections of the A. G. Leventis Foundation constitute a significant aspect of the Foundation’s dynamic presence in the field of culture and offer visitors a unique aesthetic and educational experience.

Leventis Foundation: The Paris Collection (European painting, 17th-20th century); The Collection of Greek artists’ Works (19th-20th century); and The Collection of Cypriot artists (20th century).
Roughly 270 works are on display, by artists including Giovanni Antonio Canaletto, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Marc Chagall, Nikiforos Lytras, Nikolaos Gizis, Pericles Pantazis, Spyros Papaloukas, Moralis, Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, John Kissonergis, Adamantios Diamantis, Tilemachos Kanthos.
