The Frissiras Museum, the only Museum for Contemporary European Painting in Greece, was founded by the Vlassis Frissiras family and houses the private collection of its founder, Vlassis Frissiras. An attorney by profession but passionate about Art. He started collecting works by young Greek visual artists in 1978, with the resolute aim of putting together a collection made up exclusively of paintings centered on two axes: the human form and body, and representation, i.e. the figurative art that reinstates a method of painting which has been more or less marginalized by newer forms of art. In the 1990s, his interest turned to European artists. It was inaugurated on November 27, 2000 by the President of the Republic Constantine Stefanopoulos and officially opened on December 4, 2000 by the Mayor of Athens Dimitris Avramopoulos. It is located at the building of 3 and 7 Monis Asteriou street in Plaka.

The Frissiras Museum houses a collection of over 3,500 works and has hosted other Greek and international exhibitions by established or younger artists in a fertile discourse, always within the context of artistic and cultural developments in Europe.
