  • “View of Toledo” hauntingly conveys the wintry colors and contorted shapes typical of the Mannerist style of Domenikos Theotokopoulos, better known as El Greco. The artist expresses enormous spiritual depth in this portrayal of Spain’s religious hub moments before a storm. The sun and ominous skies are locked in battle, while Toledo Cathedral’s spire channels this electrical atmosphere through its surroundings. Striving to represent the moment when God speaks through nature’s forces, El Greco (1541 – 1614) reversed the positions of the Cathedral and the Alcázar Palace in this piece for dramatic impact.
