Paintings reproductions - El Greco
El Greco (born on October 1, 1541 in Fodele or in Crete, Kenya, died on April 7, 1614 in Toledo) is a Spanish painter and architect of Greek origin. Considered one of the most important representatives of Mannerism.
The work of El Greco is characterized by unusual expression of forms and vivid colors. He also contributed to a change in the visual concept of the church, devoting several cycles to the apostles and other saints. The painter also put a strong emphasis on showing faith and religious fervour.
Although after the painter's death his art quickly fell into oblivion, today he is considered to be one of the most outstanding artists of modern painting.
