El Greco Art Prints

El Greco ("The Greek" 1541 – 7 April 1614) was a painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. He usually signed his paintings in Greek letters with his full name, Doménicos Theotokópoulos. The most unusual painter in 16th-century Europe, El Greco combined the strict Byzantine style of his homeland, Greece, with influences received during his studies in Venice and the medieval tradition of the country where he worked, Spain. He was born in Candia, on the island of Crete. Nothing is known of his parentage. He was trained as icon-maker in a monastery; he then went to Venice (soon after 1560), where Titian became his greatest mentor. El Greco, however, obtained very little influence from his master; but a certain influence of Bassano, Baroccio, Veronese, and Tintoretto could be felt but on the whole his works are very individual and distinct. In 1570, El Greco went by way of Parma (where he appreciated Correggio) to Rome, where he met Michelangelo. He criticized his "Last Judgment" severely, and offered to produce a better composition. But, on the whole Michelangelo and the Central Italian Mannerists stimulated him. The works of his Italian period are very different in style. Around 1576, the painter went to Spain. At first he was in the service of Philip II and he stayed in Toledo until his death. In 1586, he painted his famous "The Burial of Count Orgaz" (c.1586) for the church of St. Thomé, the success of which brought him a great number of commissions from the Church, the decoration of the new church of St. Domingo el Antiguo among them. He also became a popular portraitist and his painting style always gave rise to much discussion. The life of proud and independent painter demanded constant self-assertion. He rented the palace of Marquis Viliena (present Museum of El Greco in Toledo), collected a valuable library, was very successful in law suites against the church administration. Very brave in Catholic Spain was his union with a young aristocrat Jeronima de las Cuevas, mother of his bastard son Jorjé Manuel, the future Spanish architect. ‘Man of eccentric habits and ideas, of tremendous determination, extraordinary reticence, and extreme devoutness’ he was valued and respected by the intellectuals of Toledo. El Greco was buried in the Church of St. Thomé. He did not have followers, and his art was forgotten for 300 years. The re-discovery of his painting was a sensation; he became one of the most popular masters of the past, his painting rosed the interest of collectors, artists, lovers of art and art historians. El Greco is now regarded as one of the most important representatives of European Mannerism.
