El Greco’s Iconic Paintings

New York City “The Origins of El Greco: Icon Painting in Venetian Crete” at
the Onassis Cultural Center (November 16–February 27,
). Domenikos Theotokopoulos, called El Greco (“the Greek”), trained as a young
artist in the milieu of the 16th-century icon painters of Crete, the island of his
birth.  This focused exhibition draws together works from public and private collections, some
rarely seen, to examine the background of the master of Spanish mysticism.
