El Greco and His Style of Art
El Greco's painting of the Baptism as well as another of his works, the Resurrection (figure 4), create the beginning and the end of salvation. El Greco died in Toledo on April 7, 1614, and he was buried there in Santo Domingo el Antiguo.
Following his death, El Greco's work fell into obscurity and, after its rediscovery in the last century, was often misunderstood. El Greco has been called a prophet of modern art, a mystic, and even a man whose sight was distorted by astigmatism, all misconceptions that have clouded understanding of his distinctive but deliberate style. No matter how much recognition he got in Spain he never forget his Byzantine background; he signed his paintings in Greek, right to the last one.
