Sunday afternoon at the village signed in Greek (lower right) oil on paper 30 x 55 cm.
Painted in 1952.
"In paintings like Sunday afternoon in the village we can observe the artist's progress towards more personal interpretations, in which without doubt the tone is given by the clarity of the composition and the domination of colour. Apart from their chromatic qualities, these works are distinguished by the organization of space in relatively independent sections that marvellously combine inner rhythm with outer motion."1 Two paintings from this series belong to the collection of Alpha Bank, and a third to The Spyropoulos Foundation.
