Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

After training in Venice and Rome, painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos moved to Spain in 1577 and began churning out work under the name "El Greco." This exhibition allows guests to gaze at 57 works created by one of the most important painters of the Spanish Renaissance in the 16th century, including towering altarpieces, portraits and oil paintings gathered from all over the world. The exhibit include his final major work, "The Adoration of the Shepherds," which he painted as an altarpiece for his own tomb in Santo Domingo el Antiguo.
