El Greco in New York

At The Met Fifth Avenue
November 4 / 2014–February 1 / 2015
Exhibitions are free with Museum admission.

Exhibition Overview

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.


The exhibition is made possible by Northern Trust.
