This humble structure contains 86 paintings by the primitive painter Theophilos, who remains a folk hero among Greek literati. He barely scratched out an existence, moving frequently and painting coffee-house walls for his daily bread, depicting the people he met at work and at play. A year after his death in 1934, his work was exhibited at the Louvre.
