El Greco

Domenikos Theotokopoulos, who would become known to the world as “El Greco,” was an indisputable great master of painting because he created unique paintings and unprecedented images by reinventing his art throughout his life. El Greco developed his physical and spatial life experiences in his artwork, incorporating his tutelage under Byzantine, Renaissance and Mannerist masters as well as his own intellectual explorations, into creations that blended the sacred and secular in ways that the had never before seen or imagined. Writers and artists who came after him, poets Luis de Gongora and Rainer Maria Rilke and painter Pablo Picasso among them, would claim El Greco as a significant, definitive influence.
