Patras: Old Houses, Buildings and Monuments
 Maria Cacouri-Voudouroglou
Translator: Mary Kitroeff

112pp.
Hestia Publishers, 2004
ISBN: 960-05-1162-4

Artist Maria Cacouri-Voudouroglou pays tribute to her native town in Patras: Old Houses, Buildings and Monuments, a bilingual Greek-English volume translated by Mary Kitroeff. And she records some of the encounters she had with passers-by while painting the old buildings that she describes as “a precious link to the past.” There is the child who offered what was probably the contents of her piggy bank to buy a painting, and a house painter who stopped by, as a fellow practitioner, to discuss the tricks of the trade.
The paintings and sketches preserve private and public buildings that have survived urbanization, earthquakes and the ravages of time: charming examples of art deco, neoclassical, eclectic and early industrial architecture that give Patras its flavor. In the introduction, Eugenia Gatopoulos links the history of Patras to the development of its architecture, and notes the Italian influence on the city’s characteristic arcades.
