El Greco. From Italy to Toledo. Technical Study of the Works in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection.

From 10 January to 02 March 2014

Balcony. First Floor.Free entry

To mark the 400th anniversary of the death of El Greco, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza has organised El Greco. From Italy to Toledo, an exhibition that presents the results of the technical studies undertaken by the Museum’s Restoration Department on four works by the artist in the Permanent Collection: The Annunciation, ca.1576; Christ embracing the Cross, ca.1587-1596; The Annunciation, ca.1596-1600; and The Immaculate Conception, ca.1608-1614.

The chance to study these paintings, dating from different periods within the artist’s career and executed in different places, represents an outstanding opportunity for an in-depth analysis of El Greco’s technical and conceptual evolution during two notably contrasting periods of his life, separated in time by approximately two decades.
