Fitali Brothers

They were five brothers from Isternia, Georgios, Markos, Lazaros, Ioannis and Charalambos, who were born from 1826 to 1834.
The first four - who are also the most famous - study at the School of Fine Arts of Athens. Marble sculpture is mainly taken up by Georgios and Lazaros, who make several memorials for the First Cemetery of Athens, while also receiving a lot of praise. Lazaros creates Gregory V which adorns the forecourt of the University of Athens, the bust of Solomos, which is in Zante Island etc.
 
Markos is very good both at painting and at decorating. Ioannis engages more in architecture and holds a chair at the School of Fine Arts. Ioannis and Lazaros take on and manage to complete the restoration of the Lion of Cheronia. In 1860, the brothers set up a marble sculpture workshop in Athens, which becomes a source of Greek artists for more than 40 years.
 
In general, their works are defined by the elements that mark their generation: In an atmosphere of idiosyncratic classicism, realistic elements and idealistic traces are created. Less frequently and at an older age, their creations show Byzantine influences. The last of the brothers, Lazaros, passes away in 1909.
