El Greco didn’t always paint tall, eerie, twisted figures. He wasn’t always so extravagant. It took him many years to make paintings his own way, to find that way.
In Crete, where he was from, he did traditional religious pictures. “Now an angel we do like this,” his masters told him. “And a Virgin is painted this way. You’re getting the hang of it.”
