Amongst 17 other Greek artists, Eva Divari impressed again with her presence in Paris' most famous monument for Fine Arts, the Grand Palais des Beux Arts, which dominates the Champs-Élysées avenue with its Belle Époque architecture.
It is the first time Greek Painting has been given an opportunity to make such a strong presence in the French capital.
The exhibition is titled 'Art en Capital' and the venue is the historic 'Salon des Artistes Indépendants', a very old institution in France where great painters such as Cezanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissaro, Modigliani and many more have made their first appearances.
The exhibition in Grand Palais has an international character and impressively large number of visitors and many known artists take part after being accepted by a special committee.
On the year 2010 the spotlight was turned on to Greece, a fact that is advocated by the keen interest shown by large and known Art Galleries that were willing to host a substantial number of the participating Greek artists.
The exhibition, which was immediately accepted by president of Artistes Indépendants' Dominique Chapelle, was curated by art critic and historian Emy Varouksaki under the patronage of the Minister of Culture and Communications, Frederic Mitterrand, and the Greek Consulate.
Below are photos from the exhibition, images 4 and 5 with the Greek ambassadors:
