El Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos).

El Greco was born in Crete in 1541. As a young man, he went to Venice to study with Titian, the greatest painter of the day. In the spring of 1577 El Greco arrived in Spain, first in Madrid and then Toledo, where he continued to live until his death in 1614. El Greco's Greek heritage and his Italian training combined with the fervent religious climate of Spain to produce a truly unconventional artist of incredible power and creativity.
El Greco never forgot his Greek roots, usually signing his paintings in Greek letters with his full name, Doménikos Theotokópoulos.
