Domenikos Theotokopoulos (1541 - 1614), better known as El Greco (the Greek), was one of the most original painters of his time. His unique visionary style, characterised by elongated forms and bright colours, combines aspects of Byzantine and Western art. Startlingly modern in appearance, his work inspired twentieth-century painters including Cézanne, Picasso and Jackson Pollock. This is the first major exhibition of El Greco’s work in the UK.
