Artist's Description

The Academy of Athens (Greek: Ακαδημία Αθηνών) is Greece’s national academy, and the highest research establishment in the country. It was established in 1926, and operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Education.

The main building of the Academy is a neoclassical building between Panepistimiou Street and Akadimias Street and is one of the major landmarks in the centre of Athens. The building was designed as part of an architectural “trilogy” in 1859 by the Danish architect Theophil Hansen, along with the University and the National Library. Built between 1859-1863 and 1868-1885 and finished in 1887 by Ernst Ziller.
