Konstantinos Volanakis defied his parents’ wish that he become an accountant and studied at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, making his unlikely living as a landscape painter. “Konstantinos Volanakis: The Father of the Greek Seascape,” running at the B&M Theocharakis Foundation through May 13, comprises 70 representative works by the great 19th century painter that illustrate his instrumental contribution to modern Greek art.
