Museum of Cycladic Art - Nicholas P. Goulandris Foundation
27 November 2006

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation funded the organization of the multifaceted art exhibition ”Shaping the Beginning”.

The exhibition displayed a big number of exhibits which, in cooperation with other renowned foreign Museums such as Pompidou, The Louvres, Rodin Museum, Cypriot Museum of Lefkosia, and Foundations (Giakometti Foundation in Rome, etc.), brought together, for the first time, the civilizations of the Bronze Age (Cycladic, Egyptian, etc.) and the Early Iron Age (Greek and Cypriot) and compared them with famous art personalities of the 20th century such as Picasso, Brancusi, Giacometti, Moore, and others, whose art creations appear to have been - directly  or indirectly- influenced and inspired by the above civilizations.
