Teloglion Foundation was established in 1971 after the donation of art collection and property of Nestor and Aliki Teloglou to Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The building was handed over to the city of Thessaloniki in December 1999 by Aliki Teloglou almost thirty years after her husband’s death, Nestor. Teloglion’s collection, which was supported by donations such as that of Dimitrios Tsamis, Ioanna and Tonis Spiteris and many others, is of historical significance, since it includes important works that mark key moments of Modern Greek and European art. The quantity (about 8.000 artworks), the quality, the unexpected choices of works, as well as the bond that was forged between the founders and the artists, makes Teloglion’s collection one of the most important in Greece.
