The last great master of the Renaissance and first great painter of the Golden Age, Domenico Theotokopoulos (1541-1614), known as El Greco, holds a singular place in the history of art. Rediscovered by the avant-garde at the beginning of the 20th century, his work is still viewed today with the eye of modernity, seducing a large audience of lovers of both ancient and contemporary art.

Born in Crete, trained in the Byzantine tradition, Greco continued his apprenticeship in Italy, in contact with Venetian aesthetics and Roman mannerism. It was in Spain, where he settled in the 1570s and where he lived. imported his Italian influences (Titian, Tintoretto, Michelangelo), that he would reveal the extent of his talents. In Toledo, he produces both secular paintings (portraits, mythologies, landscapes) and altar paintings, such as his masterpiece The Burial of the Count of Orgaz.
