Nikolaos Doxaras (; 1706/10 in Kalamata – 2 March 1775 in Zakynthos) was a Greek painter of the Heptanese School, born in the Ionian islands.
Nikolaos Doxaras continued the artistic tradition of his father by replacing the Byzantine-style icon painting works by Italian-influenced painting. His works have been crucial for the orientation of Greek painting towards Italy.
The front of the marble iconostasis resembles the exterior of the entrance of a baroque-style church. The ceiling of the church is divided into segments depicting scenes from St. Spyridon's life and miracles. The original painter of the church ceiling was Panagiotis Doxaras who created the works in 1727. With the passage of time the Doxaras paintings rotted away and subsequently they were replaced by copies painted by Nikolaos Aspiotis, a member of the Aspiotis family of Corfu. The only remaining trace of Doxaras's work is the gilded border of the iconography.
Despite Doxaras' religious subjects, he was the first painter that tried to depict realistically the faces of his figures and his paintings' religious scenes. Doxaras also introduced into Greek iconography the technique of oil painting, which replaced the old method of mixing pigments with egg yolk. Having as a quide the works of Paolo Veronese, he painted the roof of Agios Spyridonas in Corfu, where he died. The images faded and later in the middle of the 19th century were replaced with newer ones painted by Nikolaos Aspiotis.
He was the son of the Greek painter Panagiotis Doxaras. In 1729 he joined the Venetian army, and also studied painting in Venice. In 1738 he returned to the island of Leukas and in 1745 became an army officer. Between 1753 and 1762 he worked in Zakynthos.
Doxaras' work signals the departure of Greek painting from the Byzantine iconography towards the Western European Renaissance art. He admired passionately the great Italian painters and in particular Leonardo da Vinci, whose book "Art of painting" (Trattato della pittura) he translated into Greek.
In 1726 he wrote the famous, albeit controversial and much debated theoretical text "On painting" ("Περί ζωγραφίας") in which he addressed the need for Greek art to depart from Byzantine art towards Western European art. The article was originally published after Doxaras' death in 1871. His article even today is the subject of much discussion in Greece.
The first examples of the new western influenced art can be seen at the roofs of churches which were known as "ourania" or "sofita". A pioneer in this change was Panagiotis Doxaras (1662–1729), a Maniot who was taught Byzantine iconography from the Cretan Leo Moschos. Later Doxaras would travel to Venice to study painting and he would abandon Byzantine iconography to dedicate himself to western art. Having as a quide the works of Paolo Veronese he would later paint the roof of the church of Saint Spyridon in Corfu. In 1726 he wrote the famous although controversial and much debated theoretical text "On painting" () in which he addressed the need for Greek art to depart from the Byzantine art towards western European art. His article even today is the subject of much discussion in Greece.
Around 1973, as a result of a serious train accident that took place between Doxaras and Orfana stations in Thessaly, the Hellenic Railways Organisation installed VHF/FM radios on all stations and driving cabs. In many cases the orders are transmitted over the radio by station masters, instead of being handed out in printed form. In the past OSE used ten different VHF frequencies. An allocation of 150.05 to 151.6 is reserved for the VHF/FM service. Today operations use four channels as follows:
He was born in a part of Greece that was under Venetian, rather than Ottoman control. He appears to have taken his first art lessons from Nikolaos Doxaras, who lived on Zakynthos during the 1750s. At the age of sixteen, under his direction, Koutouzis painted decorations at the Churches of Saint John of Damascus and Saint Demetrius, both of which have since been destroyed. He may have lived in Venice from 1760 to 1764. If so, he was definitely back at Zakynthos in 1766, painting the "Procession of Saint Dionysius".
Nikolaos Koutouzis (1741–1813) received lessons from Nikolaos Doxaras and continued to the move towards western European standards of painting. He was particularly known for his realistic portraiture (including a self-portrait) that emphasised the emotional background of the subject. He also reputedly painted a portrait of a baby Dionysios Solomos. After living for a period in Venice, he traveled back to Zakynthos in 1766, and painted the famous "Procession of St Dionysios". Several of his other paintings are displayed in the Byzantine Museum of Zakynthos. Koutouzis also wrote satirical poems on local affairs and scandals which often landed him in strife.
