"Municipal Art Gallery of Thessaloniki" Municipal Art Gallery of Thessaloniki Tip by dimilag


In December 1986 the Municipal Art Gallery of Thessaloniki moved into its new
quarters in a building located at 162 Queen Olga Street, at the corner of 25th
of St. Built in 1905 by architect Xenophon Paionidis, and now the property of the
Municipality, it is fine example of the eclectic style of architecture that flourished
in Thessaloniki, especially in the then suburban district known as "the Towers"
or "the Villas", at the turn of the century. The older residents of the city know it
as the "Villa Mordoch", from the name of the family who occupied it from
1930 - 1940. The building is distinctive for its rich mixture of elements drawn
from the Neo-classical, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau styles, and
which vary from one facade to the next, thus accentuating the pluralism of the
structure. Also of interest is the decorative paintwork of the interior - well preserved
in certain rooms - as well as the woodcarving.
