CATALOGUE NOTE
The pathos of Solace, where a mother consoles her grieving daughter, typifies the Greeks' plight for freedom. In the distance a glowing Acropolis attests to the nation's cultural and military achievements. Such images enjoyed massive public acclaim and were widely engraved, providing the bedrock upon which Greek artists would henceforth seek out modern pictorial identities. Other examples of Solace by Theodoros Vryzakis dated 1847 and 1856 are in the collections of the National Gallery and Alexandros Soutzos Museum, and the Hellenic Parliament, Athens. Another earlier version by Pierre Bonirote dated 1842 is currently in a private collection, Athens. Fig. 1: The reverse of the present work
