An artist is remembered for many reasons but primarily for his style, his ideas and the content of his work. Zenetzis had all of them in abundance and the fact that impressionism is not a nuvo artistic movement did not stop him to work with it, to exploit it in his own style and deliver with it great images of historical value of historical locations in Greece.

Greece was the subject of the artist Zenetzis which he painted from Corfu to all Ionian islands, to mainland Greece and especially Athens and its environs, to the Aegean Islands, Crete and Cyprus, the last bastion of Hellenism and Christianity.

Zenetzis will be admired for his images of the Greek islands and the coastal areas but his work of the Ancient Monuments of Greece will keep him high in the Pantheon of Greek art.
