ROILOS Georgios (1867-1928) “Town”

Town

A painter with an interesting and extensive range of subject matter, Georgios Roilos, despite his academic training, was concerned with depicting the landscape during the early 20th century, as were most Greek artists. His many trips to Europe broadened his horizons and led him to a personal exploration of nature characterized by daring coloration and a synthetic perception that allied him with the Post-Impressionist tendencies of his time, as well as with the ventures of the Expressionists.
