El Greco’s decade-long sojourn in Venice and Rome has recently been the focus of scholarly attention, but it has yet to be adequately reconciled with the entirety of his artistic career. Referencing studies of cultural hybridity in the early modern world, Andrew Casper explores El Greco’s assimilation of Italian Renaissance painting as well as the evolution of his idiosyncratic style.
Andrew Casper is Assistant Professor of Art History at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
