Here is a recreation of not only the events of El Greco's career, but also
the pressures and emotions of the Counter-Reformation, which inspired his
religious works. This program, filmed on location in Toledo and Venice,
shows the settings familiar to the artist--his house, the streets, churches
and countryside of Toledo--and traces his beginnings as a Byzantine icon
painter in Crete. El Greco's art expresses both the religion of his times
and a private spiritual quest, explored here in masterpieces from great
churches and museums of the world, from Madrid to New York.
