Click to enlargeEl Greco<br>Christ on the Cross

The reproduction is of "Christ on the Cross" by Domenikos Theotocopoulos (1541-1614) known as El Greco (Spanish for "the Greek").He was trained on his native island, Crete, as a painter of small-scale devotional images (icons). His influence from Tintoretto is visible here in the colors and in the elongated figural proportions. The graphic depiction of blood, however, may reflect the Spanish interest in Christ's sufferings as a subject for meditation. 36x20
