El Greco and Modern Painting

There is an exhibition at The Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain that is absolutely breathtaking. The exhibition "El Greco and Modern Painting" looks at El Greco's influences on modern painting. During the 20th Century, artists had huge admiration for El Greco's work. They appreciated his solid sculptural forms and his counter narratives evident in his paintings. Artists from Cezanne to Pollack were influenced by El Greco's outstanding works from the 1800's. If visiting the exhibition is not in your future, this article from the Financial Times is a MUST read! To learn more about the exhibit, visit the Prado's Website.
