The artist

Domínikos Theotokópoulos, called El Greco (1541-1614)

El Greco was born around 1541 in Crete, which was then part of the Republic of Venice. In his mid-twenties, he went to Venice and studied with Titian, the most famous painter of his time. At around the age of 35, he moved to Toledo, Spain, where he lived and worked all his life, producing his best-known paintings. His works of this period are considered as precursors of expressionism and cubism. We remember above all his elongated and tortured characters, often of a religious nature, whose style disconcerted his contemporaries but helped to establish his reputation in the years to come.
