Italy, Germany, France and USA where a few places where many Greek artists could develop their own style and where they let great contributions to art history. They have left behind a cultural contribution that has not yet been sufficiently appreciated. Not only artists but also art mediators such as Christan Zervos (a.o. for Picasso) and Teriade (a.o. for Miro, Matisse, Chagall) or art consultant Alexander Ioalas (galleries, collector and promotor for Andy Warhol, René Magritte, Roberto Matta, Ed Ruscha, Jean Tinguely, Yves Klein, Jannis Kounellis, Takis, Victor Brauner and Niki de Saint-Phalle a.o).. have also played a decisive role in shaping European and American art history.
