Rediscovered by the avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century, his work is still interpreted through the lens of modemity. Born in Crete and trained in the Byzantine tradition of icon painting, El Greco continued his apprenticeship in ltaly, studying Venetian aesthetics and Roman Mannerism. He moved to Spain in the 1570s, bringing with him Titian's color, Tintoretto's daring and Michelangelo's sculptural power. He deployed his impressive range of talents in Toledo, where he created altarpieces and secular paintings, imposing an innovative artistic approach while constantly exploring new ground, in the process developing a profoundly personal visual language.
