Nikolaos Kalogeropoulos studied theology at the Rizareio School and the University of Athens. Later he moved to Munich where he continued his theological studies and at the same time studied painting and history of art, independently.
His themes included landscapes, portraiture and dead nature but most importantly seascapes. Many of these are housed permanently in The Hellenic Maritime Museum and are testament to his contribution to Greek art in this genre of painting.
Kalogeropoulos followed in the footsteps of two great Greek seascape painter, Constandinos Volanakis and Vasilios Chatzis. His work differs from his predecessors as he broke away from academism and was influenced by impressionism. He uses a simple colour palette, soft brushstrokes and evokes a romantic tone influenced by “J. Vernet”.
His work is found in many public and private collections, notably: The National Gallery, Athens, The Athens Municipal Gallery, The Piraeus Municipal Gallery, The Hellenic Maritime Museum and The National Bank of Greece.
