'View of Toledo', by El Greco c.1596-1600, Oil on Canvas. It's very rare to find an isolated landscape in the spanish paintings during the Renaissance and even during the Baroque. This makes El Greco the first landscaper in the history of Spanish art. Regarding its enigmatic symbolism, it is thought that it could be related to the mystic spirit that the city was involved during those times.

''El Greco; Asunción de la Virgen''. The overscale folds of El Greco's draperies suggest the use of a lay figure. The effect is to create a sense of unreality - like a mad dream where nothing is as it should be.

El Greco - The Burial of the Count of Orgaz. The Burial of the Count of Orgaz is a painting by El Greco, a Greek painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. Widely considered among his finest works, it illustrates a popular local legend of his time. An exceptionally large painting, it is very clearly divided into two sections, heavenly above and terrestrial below, but it gives little impression of duality. The upper and lower sections are brought together compositionally.
