The first monographic survey of Doménikos Theotokópolous – better known as El Greco – to take place in France, this exhibition progresses from the early Byzantine-influenced paintings the artist completed in Crete to the visionary religious paintings he completed during his four decades in Spain, and considers how he absorbed Venetian and Florentine influences from Titian, Tintoretto and Michelangelo to create a highly individual style that ushered in the Spanish Golden Age.
