El Greco and His Patrons: Three Major Projects (Cambridge Studies in the History of Art) by Richard G. Mann

The bold and unusual religious paintings of El Greco (c. 1541 - 1614) have aroused widespread interest and wonder, but until now little has been known about the artists patrons. This is the first comprehensive study of the several individuals who financed, encouraged and influenced El Grecos extraordinary artistic endeavours. Mann reconstructs the lives of several of the artists patrons and demonstrates fow El Grecos pictorial ensemble reflected the patrons concerns, who helped to shape both the style and iconography of the paintings. The precise nature of the connection between the paintings and Spanish mysticism is clarified. The author provides us the basis for a new interpretation of the artists work and presents many insight into life in 16th-century Spain.
