The Trinity - El Greco
The Trinity - this impressive religious wall tapestry is a reproduction of the original mannerist painting by noted Greek artist El Greco. It was originally painted in 1577 for the altarpiece of Santo Domingo el Antiguo church in Toledo, Spain. It achieved great fame in its day and clearly shows the artists' influences, in particular the impact of Italian Renaissance art on his work.
Reminiscent of Michelangelo's Pieta it depicts Christ after the crucifixion, supported by the Holy Father and attended to by the Holy Spirit and numerous angels. Its vivid colors and impressive palette demonstrate the artists' evident skill in composition and the intensity of his vision. The original can be found in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain.
A native of Crete, El Greco (1541-1614), as he was known throughout Spain and Italy, actually signed all his work with his native Greek name, Dominikos Theotokopulos. Although very little is known about his early life he is believed to have trained in the Byzantine tradition of icon painting before moving to Italy. He later moved to Toledo in Spain, where he spent the rest of his life, finding the success that eluded him during his stay in Rome. The Holy Trinity tapestry featured above is a magnificent testament to El Greco's original art, as well as a truly striking piece of wall decor.
