Meetings with Kontoglou: Enlightening, lively discussions on Byzantine iconography and music, diverse writers, philosophers and theologians, and contemporary events and trends, between the author and the great icon painter, writer, and philosopher Photios Kontoglou

   
Constantine Cavarnos

In this[...]book, I present a biography of Kontoglou from 1920 to the time of his death in 1965, and at the same time a broad account of his work as a painter and writer, as well as an examination of his views on many significant subjects. My starting point and chief basis are my numerous meetings with him from 1952 to 1965, as these have been described in my diaries that I kept during that period.
