El Greco


El Greco: Self portrait (1604)

El Greco (medieval Castilian for "the Greek") is the popular name for Dominikos Theotokópoulos (1541, Fodele or Candia (now Heraklion), Crete – April 7, 1614, Toledo, Spain), a Cretan Greek painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. He is best known for tortuously elongated figures and often fantastic or phantasmagorical pigmentation.

El Greco referred to himself not as a craftsman or painter, but rather as an artist-philosopher because he was guided by his underlying religious principles. His works are all very intense to the viewer. The strong spiritual emotion transfers from painting directly to the audience. A fantastic example of his religious fervor is in the painting, "Saint Francis in Prayer." His strange art has had many wonder if he was insane or suffered from eye problems, such as astigmatism, but in actuality it simply reflected the strong Christian influence in Spain during the time.
