Still Inspiring, 400 Years Later

Since the 19th century, artists have looked to El Greco’s intense portraits, dramatic mythological scenes and tempestuous landscapes as a source of inspiration. Now, his fans in New York will have the chance to see an unusually large number of his works.

On view at the Met will be nine paintings from its own holdings, with six from the Hispanic Society of America. Since the Frick Collection cannot lend any art acquired by its founder, Henry Clay Frick, as stipulated in his will, it will have a celebration of its own, displaying its three paintings — “Purification of the Temple,” “St. Jerome” and the portrait of Vincenzo Anastagi — together in its East Gallery.
