The Cardinal Mouse art by Alan F. Beck
El Greco, (1541 – 1614), was a painter, sculptor and architect of the Spanish Renaissance.] In 1570 he moved to Rome, where he opened a workshop and executed a series of works. During his stay in Italy, El Greco enriched his style with elements of Mannerism and of the Venetian Renaissance.

El Greco's dramatic and expressionistic style was met with puzzlement by his contemporaries but found appreciation in the 20th century. El Greco is regarded as a precursor of both Expressionism and Cubism.
