El Greco

For a long time it was believed that the artist was born in a village near the town of Candia Fodele, modern Heraklion on Crete, which was part of the time of the Venetian Republic. However, this is not the case. Domenico Theotokopoulos was born in Heraklion in 1541, and in Fodele he lived for some time with his family. His parents do not have any reliable information, as, indeed, of his childhood. We know, however, that in his youth he studied icon painting.

At age 26, in 1567, he went to Venice, where he enrolled in a training workshop of Titian. In 1576, El Greco went to Spain for the service of King Philip II of Spain. After some time, the artist moved to Toledo - the ancient capital of Spain, the center of the Spanish education and art of the time, where he remained until his death. El Greco died on April 7, 1614 and was buried in Toledo, Spain, in the convent of Santo Domingos El Antiguo
