The involvement of the Zoumboulakis family with art and its various forms started in the beginning of the 20th century when Theodore Zoumboulakis opened his first antique shop in Edward Law Street in the center of Athens. It was in 1966 that Tassos Zoumboulakis with his wife Peggy, continuing the family tradition, opened -along with the antique shop, a new space of contemporary art in 7 Kriezotou street.
It has hosted, together with Kriezotou 7, some of the most well established and internationally acclaimed Greek and foreign artists. In the 1970s Zoumboulakis Galleries exhibited Dali, Magritte, De Chirico, Picasso (1979 in collaboration with Bayeler Gallery), Warhol. They have also introduced to the greek art public, movements such as Neo-realism in collaboration with Alexandre Iolas Gallery (Arman, Cesar, Deschamps, Dufrene, Klein, Niki de Saint Phalle etc.) and Kinetic Art with Denise René Gallery (Agam, Calder, Cruz-Diez, Soto, Vasarely etc.).
Meanwhile important Greek artists established often a long-term collaboration with the Gallery. Moralis, Tsarouhis, Takis, Tsoklis, Akrithakis, Pavlos and Chryssa Fassianos exhibited their work there during the last decades.
