Influential painter El Greco is immortalized in the pantheon of artistic greats. But as detailed in the intimate El Greco: Rediscovering a Master video, he was so close to eternal obscurity...


Product Description:

The famed painter El Greco was just a breath away from being pushed into lifelong obscurity, until a cult following snowballed, allowing El Greco a position as one of Spain's greatest painters. The "El Greco: Rediscovering a Master" DVD explains his ultimate evolution from obscure counter-cultural figure to widely revered and adored artistic master. 

Over the course of an hour, viewers get an in-depth look at various elements of El Greco's life and status, including:

  • the young Modernist discovery of his late work
  • 20th century revivalism
  • recent examples of El Greco's clear influences on generation-spanning painters

The revitalization began in a small museum in Barcelona, and is still continuing as El Greco gains followers and further appreciation as time goes on.
