El Greco

29 12 2011

When I see an El Greco painting, I think I see Dali. His longated figures remind me of Modigliani. The angels and saints and all the religious paraphernalia of his age (the anti-gravity illusions) remind you of Magritte and the surrealists. And the paintings of crowds remind me of some collage works. And yet he was a figure of the 16th and 17th century. His work must have looked very odd to those people.
