    The painter's given name was Domenikos Theotokopoulos. In Toledo, where he lived for nearly forty years, he was known as "El Greco" (the Greek). This view is the only independent landscape by the artist that survives. He has imaginatively reconfigured the city, showing the cathedral not in its actual position but to the left of the Alcázar palace.

    This work of art also appears on 82nd & Fifth: My First Time and Connections: After Hours , City , Clouds , Hemingway , Spain
