The development of landscape painting, by A. G. Leventis Gallery

” and its establishment as an important thematic constituent of Cypriot art is closely connected to the work of Ioannis Kissonerghis. He is also the source of the tradition of painting ‘en plein air’ – that is, from nature – which was followed by all Cypriot artists during the first six decades of the 20th century.”

– Dr Eleni S. Nikita, Curator of the Cyprus Collection, A. G. Leventis Gallery from the exhibition catalogue of ‘Genius Loci – Ioannis Kissonerghis and British Landscape Painters’ (Nicosia, October 2016 – January 2017)
