The full-length Portrait of Georgios Averoff was painted from a photograph of the national benefactor which seems to have been more widely known, since it is to be found published in periodicals of the period, and it is on this that the portrait painted by the young Constantinos Parthenis eight years later is based. The work belonged to the Averoff Gymnasium in Alexandria and was donated, after the school closed, to Evangelos Averoff-Tosizza for the Gallery at Metsovo.
