Any initial research into Spain will demonstrate a rich history of unique art – from gothic and religious perfection to the modern styling of Picasso and El Greco really stands on his own as one of the true classics.
A painter, sculptor and architect working during the Renaissance, El Greco (aka The Greek) – his full name in Greek was Doménikos Theotokópoulos – touched on many styles such as Mannerism and Venetian Renaissance.
His influence really became formidable in the 20th century when poets and painters in the Expressionist and Cubist styles picked up memes from his work and took them into the modern era.
