Museo De El Greco

The best of El Greco’s late works. The Museo del Greco brings together an important group of the Cretan artist’s works, all of them outstanding within his corpus and dating from 1600 –
1614, the final period of his artistic activity. Especially noteworthy are the View and Plan of Toledo, Christ the Saviour, the portraits of the Covarrubias Brothers and the Altarpiece of St Bernardine. The Tears of St Peter, which dates from 1580 – 1590, is also a canvas of exceptional
quality. As well as the paintings by El Greco, the museum also displays works by Diego Tristán, his best disciple, by his son Jorge Manuel and by other contemporary artists from Toledo, as well as 17th century works from the Madrid and Seville schools.
Where is it? The El Greco museum is in the Jewish quarter of Toledo, near the Sinagoga del Tránsito and very near where El Greco’s house was, although the house itself no longer exists.
A museum in a mansion. The Museo del Greco occupies two adjoining buildings: a 15th century Mudéjar mansion and the extension to it, built in the early 20th century, both giving onto a pleasant historic patio. The museum was founded in 1911 by Don Benigno de la Vega-Inclán,
Marqués de la Vega-Inclán, and was crucial in the conservation of many of El Greco’s works which at that time were scattered in various different locations in the city of Toledo and were in serious danger of disappearing.
