"The Greek in Toledo" will gather one hundred works of painter El Greco in the town where he died 400 years ago.
Over a hundred works by El Greco will gather in the largest exhibition of the artist ever held. More than 60 paintings will arrive from 29 different cities of the world.
The link between El Greco (Candia, Crete, 1541-Toledo, 1614) and the City of Toledo is an historical fact and, yet, no exhibition devoted to this painter has ever taken place in Toledo.
For this reason, in order to mark the 400th Anniversary of the artist's death on 7th April 1614, this exhibition will be held in the city that best reflects his career and influence.
The exhibition will be staged at the Museum of Santa Cruz, extending to different spaces throughout Toledo known as El Greco Venues, thus providing an in-depth insight into the different places where El Greco carried out his work: the Vestry of Toledo Cathedral, The Chapel of San José, the Convent of Santo Domingo el Antiguo, the Church of Santo Tomé and the Tavera Hospital.
