Proteus and Andromeda, comic strip by G. Grammatopoulos – Cartoon Museum



Cartoon Museum


The Cartoon Museum has been in operation since 1994. It was founded and it operates in collaboration with a group of Greek cartoonists. The museum has a permanent exhibition of cartoons, mainly caricatures, comic strips and other kinds of sketches by Greek and foreign cartoonists. There is also a library and archives.

The Cartoon Museum is housed in the neoclassical Villa Treiber near the New City Hall. Treiber was a German philhellene who came to Greece after the Greek War of Independence in 1821 and remained in the country, later becoming a chief medical officer of the Greek Army.

Some of the most important exhibits of the museum are:

• Comic strips by G. Grammatopoulos: "Proteus and Andromeda", on a script by B. Rotas, from the
  series "Illustrated Classics" published by Atlantis.
• Caricatures of cartoonists of the early years of the 20th century, from the satirical review 'Satanas'.
• Cover of the periodical "Phanos" by Phokion Dimitriades.
