Domenikos Theotokopoulos El Greco

Renowned Greek artist. He developed his career in Italy and Spain. His paintings show long figures and powerful colors, included in mannerism and movement. Among his paintings: “El Caballero de la Mano en el Pecho”, “El Martirio de San Mauricio” or “El Entierro del Señor de Orgaz.” First he was buried in the church of the convent of Santo Domingo el Antiguo in Toledo, but works in the church may have hidden his grave. Another theory is that he was buried in Church of San Torcuato which no longer exists. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
