El Greco in New York

#ElGreco400

Purchase advance tickets to avoid waiting in admission lines. Exhibitions are free with Museum admission.

To commemorate the four-hundredth anniversary of the death of El Greco, the Metropolitan Museum and the Hispanic Society of America are pooling their collections of the work of this great painter to provide a panorama of his art unrivaled outside the Museo del Prado in Madrid. The Frick Collection is displaying its paintings contemporaneously.

This is a unique opportunity to see this artist's work, which exerted such a strong impact on modern painting and especially appealed to New York collectors.

Read an essay on El Greco by Keith Christiansen, John Pope-Hennessy Chairman of the Department of European Paintings, on the Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History.
