STRATIS ELETHARIADIS

Stratis Eleftheriadis - Teriade was born in Mytilini in 1897 and died in Paris in 1983. At the age of eighteen he left for Paris to study law. His real passion, however, was art theory and critic. At the time he was in Paris modern art was first taking form and gradually Teriade became part of the circle of the pioneering modern artists and their proponents.

He entered into a significant and enduring collaboration with established editors and publishers of modern art. He devoted himself to publishing periodicals, books, and articles concerning art. After many years of being well-known and highly respected he established his own publishing house, VERVE, in 1937.

One of Teriade's most significant contibutions was the recognition that he offered to the -until then- neglected work of Theophilos. It is solely due to Teriade's vision that today Theophilos' unique spirit is preserved. We know Theophilos through the works that the painted on canvas after the request of Teriade. Teriade him internationally by arranging a display in the Louvre, and thus attracting the attention of many people. Teriade financed entirely and donated to Mytilini in 1964 the Theophilos Museum, which houses the artist's latest works, like the one on this page.

At the time he thought of building a Museum-Library to display his work as an editor and publisher. This idea materialized in the museum of today which he also donated to his home town in 1979. The Museum of Modern Arts serves as an Open Book, in which visitors are introduced to proofs, original works and critiques of many pioneers of the modern art, including Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, and others.
