El Greco

174 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #5688
Renaissance   •   El Greco @ Wikipedia

El Greco, the Greek, was born as Domínikos Theotokópoulos in 1541. His work as a painter, sculptor and architect brought him from Crete to Toledo in Spain, where he coined the Spanish Mannerism. Before traveling on an unknown route to Spain, the Greek artist spent a few more years in Venice and Rome. There he got to know the art of Titian , whose technique strongly influenced El Greco's later work.

El Greco's work is marked by religious motives. His style is influenced equally by his early experience as an icon painter in Greece and his exposure to Western techniques in Italy and Spain. His major work, for which he is famous today, was created in Spain. Here, his painting slowly changed from naturalism to the rules of the Renaissance, especially in terms of proportions and perspectives. One of his most famous paintings is the " Funeral of the Count of Orgaz " from 1586-1588. The painting can be roughly divided into an upper and a lower part. While the lower part shows a funeral, in the upper part of the sky can be seen, enters the soul of the deceased and is the world judge. Although El Greco's work depicts religious motifs to a large extent, research today assumes that the artist was less inclined towards religion and belief, as his notes are rarely concerned with religious themes. © Meisterdrucke
