Artists, musicians and other artists from all over the world who lived in Hydra, contributed with their spirit, their lifestyles and their ideological concerns to the creation of a special atmosphere on the island. Amongst the foreign artists, who connected their names to Hydra, is the famous singer and writer Leonard Cohen, who arrived at Hydra in the 1960’s, where there was a small community of foreign and local artists. Key figures were the Australians writers George Johnson and Charmian Clift, the English painter Anthony Kingsmil, the American painter Peter Nolan, the Norwegian author Axel Gensen and the American poet Allen Ginsberg.
