From the painting “Sister Tone” (Motra Tone), otherwise known as “the Albanian Mona Lisa”, painted in 1883, up to the Dantesque tabloid “Two roads” (Dy rrugët), the public will have a unique opportunity to see Idromeno’s masterpieces exposed near one another. The exhibit focuses also at Idromeno’s photography, and there’s a section dedicated to some ethnographic items which were used by him as a source of inspiration for his works. The exhibit will stay open until 8th of September, from Monday to Sunday, 10 AM to 6 PM. The event curator is Erzen Shkololli. Below some of the photos:
