El Greco was a Greek painter who influenced Spanish mannerism. He was born in Greece in 1541 as Domenikos Theotokopoulos. On Crete he learns the craft of icon painting. His paintings are characterized by religious motifs. One of his most famous works becomes the funeral of the Count of Orgaz, which was painted in his later home country Spain. The picture shows a deceased whose soul ascends to heaven to face the judge of the world. It was made from 1586 to 1588. It still impresses today with its intense colours, which he used in his paintings.

His activity as a painter brought him from his home island Crete, via Venice and Rome to Spain. In Venice he became a student of Tizian and was deeply impressed by his works of art. The Grand Master of the Italian High Renaissance teaches the young Greek. Here his art style changes. The straightforward, Byzantine painter turns to Venetian painting, which is known for its strong colours and spatial depth. His paintings become more colourful. He uses lemon yellow and rich pink tones in his paintings. He then travels to Rome. At that time the most important artists of Europe lived in Rome, such as Michelangelo, Raffael or Pontormo. Intimidated by the talent of the artists and a bad order situation he moved on to Spain. He first lands in Madrid and applies for a job at the king's castle. This was still under construction and El Greco hoped to be able to participate in it. But the king rejected his application.

He travels further across the country. By chance he ends up in the Spanish royal and episcopal city of Toledo. The city is to become his new home. Here he feels at home and welcome. He quickly makes a name for himself and makes friends with his new acquaintances, who later become his best friends. The locals call the talented artist "El Greco". It becomes his nickname, which has been handed down until today. In his new home, El Greco created his greatest works of art, which are still world-famous today. He paints the Laocoon painting, for example. This work of art embodies El Greco's very personal history. Here, he connects his native Greece with his new home Toledo in a creative way, which inspires the people very much. In the following years, his paintings had a decisive influence on Spanish mannerism. He was inspired by the works of the Spanish mystics San Juan de la Cruz and Teresa of Ávila and always found new ideas. As he grew older, he created classic, rather quiet pictures. El Greco died in 1614 in Toledo. He became 73 years old. © Meisterdrucke
