Benaki Museum presents the exhibition "Dominicos Theotokopoulos - between Venice and Rome".
The exhibition is hosted at Pireos Annexe and presents the first steps of one of the best painters of Greece: El Greco. Dominicos Theotokopoulos (its Greek name), was born and raised in Crete. When he was a young man he left his island to live and create most of his masterpieces in Venice, Rome, Madrid and Toledo.
The exhibition investigates the artist’s first steps in the West, during his stay in Venice and through the early stages of his residence in Rome (1567-1574). With the help of paintings, engravings and manuscripts, visitors will be able to follow the blossoming art of the ambitious and defiant Cretan in the important artistic centres of post-Renaissance Italy.
The exhibition at the Benaki Musuem will present for the first time in Greece the El Greco's painting "A Boy Blowing a candle" from the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte in Naples.
