Book Description1929. In the middle of the 16th century, the great Renaissance was drawing toward its close, but a new genius, Domenicos Theotocopoulos, to be known as El Greco, was born. His youth gathered and expressed Byzantine and Renaissance art. His maturity founded our modern school. Many painters, from Velasquez on, have recognized him as their master. Often the recognition seems a boast, but the fact remains that progressive art always reaches toward him. He is more than the source of Cezanne and Picasso. He is, in Cossio's phrase, "the prophet of every rebirth of individualism."
