Nikolaos Alektorides was born in 1874 in the city of Kaesarea, Asia Minor.

He was self-taught and studied in Constantinople under the Italian painter F. Zonaro.

In 1893 he first came to Athens working on hagiography. By the 1900’s he permanently settled in the Greek capital.

He was a contributing member of the art magazine ‘Gallery’ (Πινακοθήκη) and a founding member and general secretary of the Greek Art Society.

Influenced by the sphere of academism, his subject matter includes portrait, mythological compositions with religious content and genre painting. However, he excelled in landscape and seascape where the general atmosphere and light quality is achieved in an impressionistic manner.

He participated in a number of prestigious group exhibitions such the 1902 and 1903 Constantinople Art Exhibition, the 1907, 1908 and 1909 Athens International Exhibition and the 1909 Greek Art Association exhibition in Cairo.

In 1907, he participated in the International Naval Exhibition in Bordeaux, where he was awarded the Gold Medal.

Alektorides died in Athens at the young age of thirty-five.

His works are found in many public and private collections, notably: The National Gallery, Athens, The Athens Municipal Gallery, The Averoff Gallery, The Koutlides Collection and The National Bank of Greece.
