Athens has been for centuries the capital of the world and the place where some of the most valuable ideas surfaced and took shape. There are Greece paintings dedicated to the ancient philosophers and historians, as well as the buildings where history was written. The Acropolis and Parthenon are instantly recognizable sites, even by those who never visited the island and are not exactly well-versed in history.
The fact that they coexist with modern structures is even more impressive and the Greek posters available at CanvasGalleryArt.com are impressive for this particular reason. Extremes frequently attract and even though the contrast is obvious, the entire image looks consistent and it will catch the eye of any guests. The countryside is just as beautiful and with hundreds of tiny islands scattered all over the place, there are plenty of Greek prints celebrating them. Santorini and the Mykonos island are unique and the white silhouettes of the towns, in contrast with the blue sea create a powerful image.
