MUSEUM OF CYCLADIC ART - N.P. GOULANDRIS FOUNDATION

The Museum of Cycladic Art is devoted to the study and promotion of ancient Greek art. It is a private institution, founded in 1986 in order to house the collection of Cycladic and Ancient Greek art belonging to Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris.

The Museum's two main permanent collections are:
ˇ the Cycladic collection, with objects made in the islands of the Cyclades in the 3rd millennium BC
ˇ and the Ancient Greek collection, covering Greek art from the 2nd millennium B.C. to the first centuries AD.

According to its constituent act, the objectives of the N.P. Goulandris Foundation are the study of Aegean civilisation, research into Greek prehistoric and Classical art, and its dissemination and promotion. The Foundation ensures the protection, display, and expansion of the collection; organises temporary exhibitions on important topics; undertakes the publication of scholarly monographs and catalogues; and participates in research projects world-wide.
