Summary
El Greco's paintings marked a radical departure from the naturalism and careful modeling of the Renaissance, and as result were ignored for close to 300 years. Domenicos Theotocopolous, dubbed by the Spaniards 'El Greco', was born in the Greek Island of Crete and was trained to paint in the Byzantine style. Throughout the course of his artistic career El Greco's style varied enormously. The result was a highly individualistic style of painting. Though criticized by many, El Greco's dramatic style paved the way for the Baroque and later, in the 20th century, contributed to the development of Expressionism. Works featured in this program include The Purification of the Temple, The Disrobing of Christ, Martyrdom of St Maurice, The Burial of Count Orgaz, and Laocoon .
