Portraits

The National Hellenic Museum has only one portrait by Alexander Mohr in its collection, a painting of one of the donor’s family members. However, portrait painting was an important part of his oeuvre; not the least, because it was by painting portraits that the artist paid the better part of his living. In addition to these commercial portraits, Mohr created several portrait series, predominantly of Greek women, whom he would paint multiple times over decades.
