Beaux Arts Special Edition / Greco Grand Palais
For the first time in France, the Grand Palais is dedicating an exhibition to the Cretan artist Domenico Theotokopoulos, known as "Greco", founder of the 16th century Spanish School. The artist imports into the peninsula "the colour of Titian, the boldness of Tintoretto and the plastic strength of Michelangelo". This synthesis, original but consistent with his trajectory, gives Greco, who died four years after Caravaggio, a special place in the history of painting: that of the last great master of the Renaissance and the first great painter of the Golden Age.
Rediscovered by the European avant-garde at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, his work, both fiery and electric, combines tradition and innovation in a humanist spirit, at the dawn of the golden century.
From his beginnings in Byzantine art to his aesthetic adherence to the Venetian movement, Beaux Arts Éditions portrays this insatiable inventor of forms, developing innovative and audacious compositions, with an electric palette and a free and independent line.
