Adamantios Diamantis
His Life and Work

The second volume in the series of great Cypriot artists of the twentieth century is dedicated to the monumental work of painter Adamantios Diamantis (1900 – 1994), an avant-garde artist in modern Cypriot art. The result of many years of painstaking research by Eleni S. Nikita, this volume allows us to enjoy Diamantis’ works whilst providing useful biographical and bibliographical information, as well as a well-documented analysis of his work and significant contribution to modern Cypriot painting. E. Nikita notes: “Though choosing to nurture his painting with nothing else but local material, his art never became neither ethnographic nor descriptive”.
