7th High School of
Minicipal Art Gallery
It was founded in 1983. G.I.Katsigras, a
surgeon from Larissa who was an art-lover,
donated 700 paintings to the museum. These
paintings constituted the nucleus of the gallery.
These paintings are works of Greek
artists and span a period from the 19th century
to the 20th century (1960). This collection is
considered to be the third most important
collection after Koutlidiʼs collection and the
National Gallery collection.
Another 210 Greek artists'
paintings that belonged to the municipal
collection have been added to G.I.Katsigra
