In this “newspaper” of the retrospective exhibition presented at the Grand Palais, the figure of el Greco is explored through literature, highlighting the evolution that his painting underwent from its Venetian phase to the development of a pictorial language with its own personality.
Considered the last master of the Renaissance and the first great painter of the Spanish Golden Age, his freedom and creative complexity allowed him to move between tradition and modernity, exerting a significant influence on the development of the avant-garde movement at the beginning of the 20th century.
Exhibition curated by Guillaume Kientz. Associate Curator, Charlotte Chastel-Rousseau.
