The inside story

Discover the artworks of the 1500s artist that inspired the avant-garde of the late 1800s and 1900s, from Impressionism to Cubism. El Greco (The Greek) is one of the great protagonists of the Western figurative culture. A visionary artist, known for his unique sinuous painting, the human form distorted by mystic fury, acid colors, at the edge of being psychedelic. Defined as the painter of the Counter-Reformation, El Greco was one of the most innovative and original artists of his era, because he had the ability to blend two contrasting cultures: the Greek Orthodox and the Roman Catholic Renaissance. Born in Creta, he was artistically formed in Italy, in contact with the great Venetian masters Titian, Tintoretto and Jacopo Bassano. Visit the exhibition "El Greco in Italy. Metamorphosis of a genius", at the Carrara House of Treviso from October 24th, 2015 to April 10th, 2016, the largest exhibition ever held in Italy about the Cretan artist.
