Museum of Theophilos

Museum of Theophilos Review

Crammed to the ceiling in this museum are 86 of the eponymous artist's "naive," precise works detailing the everyday life of local folk such as fishermen and farmers, and fantasies of another age. Theophilos lived in poverty but painted airplanes and cities he had never seen. He painted in bakeries for bread, and in cafés for ouzo, and walked around in ancient dress.
