Angeliki Lymberopoulou: El Greco, a Cretan painter?
Recorded on 21 May 2014, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, as part of the International Symposium on El Greco, to mark 400 years since his death (1541, Candia – 1614, Toledo).
This study examines a church dedicated to the Archangel Michael, built by and for the Cretan Orthodox congregation on the south-western part of the island during the period when it was under Venetian domination (1211-1669). Its surviving inscription dates the church 1327/28.
This book forms the third of a series of three volumes produced by The Open University and together entitled 'Renaissance Art Reconsidered'. The other two volumes are "Making Renaissance Art" and "Locating Renaissance Art". While the first two volumes focus on different issues surrounding the production of works of art, this book explores patterns of viewing and consuming art in the period leading up to the Reformation.
