El Greco,, Greece 1541 to 1614 Oil Paintings
"The Greek," who marked paintings with his Greek name, Domenikos Theotokopoulos, was influenced by his origin. Crete was a middle for the Byzantine creative practice, concerned more with reflection and example than recording regular appearances. He later left for Spain. Failing to win favor at the Madrid court, he got comfortable Toledo, Spain's social and strict focus, where he built up his brand name style-stretched figures, free brushwork, expressive lighting, and corrosive shading away.
