 El Greco

       El Greco (Spanish for “the Greek”) is the name by which Domenikos Theotokopoulos (1541 – April 7, 1614), a Cretan-born painter and sculptor, is best known. He was a master painter in Crete; he journeyed to Rome where he studied under Titian. In 1577 he emigrated to Toledo, Spain, where he produced his mature works. Many of El Greco’s works are on display at the Museo del Prado. El Greco was born on the island of Crete and first trained as an icon painter. At the age of 26, wishing to widen his artistic horizons, he traveled to Venice and Rome, before settling in Toledo, at the time the ecclesiastical capital of Spain. There, he led a successful career as a painter of altarpieces and portraits.
