This Art Book representing 101 annotated reproductions of selected paintings from El Greco. El Greco (born Doménikos Theotokópoulos) was a painter, sculptor and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. He is one of the not many old masters who benefit from extensive fame. Like few others, he was rediscovered from darkness by an enthusiastic faction of 19-century collectors and critics, and became one of the chosen members of the contemporary pantheon of great artists. For many later admirers, El Greco was both the archetypal Spaniard and a intellectual artist of the spirit. It was as a master who “felt the spiritual inner creation”.
