The Patriarch welcomed the chairperson of the Board of the Papageorgiou Hospital Vasileios Papas and the representative of the Experimental Workshop of Vergina Pavlos Trochopoulos in the Phanar.
The two men invited the Ecumenical Patriarch to the painting collection “Saint Luke the Doctor” by the late architect and painter Efthymios Warlamis, which will take place in the autumn at Papageorgiou Hospital.
The painting collection of the great artist of the Greek diaspora is an exhibition of contemporary paintings that presents the synergy of Faith and Healing in a revealing way that only art can do since it combines rationality with feelings.
Warlamis’ work on Saint Luke was his last work, and all the presentations have had a huge impact on the general public so far.
There has been widespread interest from other major hospitals in Greece and institutions abroad in hosting this painting collection.
