Description

El Greco's work and his influence on 19th and 20th century painting with a wide selection of works by artists such as Picasso, Cézanne, Pollock and El Greco himself.

The Prado Museum presents 25 of El Greco's works and more than 70 modern pieces that display the rich and complex influence of ‘the Greek from Toledo' on painting. The exhibition starts off with artists such as Manet and Cézanne to show El Greco's influence in the 19th century. It then highlights the influence on Picasso's Cubism, Central European Expressionism, and Surrealism. Artists such as Matta and Pollock show his impact in America, and Giacometti, Bacon and Saura, amongst others, are a testament to the presence of El Greco in the images of the 1950s and 60s.
