The Hellenic Parliament in collaboration with the SHP and the Philhellenism Museum organized a particularly successful exhibition on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the death of the great romantic poet and emblematic Philhellene, Lord Byron.

The exhibition entitled Beholding Liberty with Lord Byron’ s gaze, presents rare personal objects of Lord Byron and remarkable Byronic artworks from the collection of the Philhellenism Museum.

As a still living organism, the exhibits invite the visitor to navigate a unique route where the narration of Lord Byron’ s life and work allow the deepest comprehension of his contribution to the liberation of Greece, as well as the reason why he has been recorded in the international collective memory as the most glorious Philhellene of all times.

The exhibition is curated by the art historian Dr. Thodoris Koutsoyiannis.
