This book shares the story of El Greco and the cultural significance of his work.
Responsible for a number of experimental masterpieces, including ‘The Vision of St John’, ‘The Disrobing of Christ’, and ‘The Burial of The Count of Orgaz’, Doménikos Theotokópoulos was more widely known as El Greco and is notable for his rejection of naturalism and his use of a unique single-minded style. From Byzantine icons to conceptual practice, this book examines the influences of the radical artist’s oeuvre, providing a detailed chronological summary of his life and career alongside approximately one hundred compelling illustrations with explanatory captions.
This book is an essential introduction to the influences and ingredients of the radical vision of this great old master painter.
