On Wednesday, December 3, the exhibition "Domenicos Theotocopoulos before El Greco" has been inaugurated at the Byzantine and Christian Museum.
The exhibition is part of the Greek programme of events organized for the El Greco Year, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of the famous painter.
The exhibition seeks to shed light on the social and artistic environment of 26th-century Crete, where Theotokopoulos’ personality was formed before he left Candia for Venice in 1567, and to place the painter and his early artistic output in the context of this environment.
Duration of the exhibition 4 December 2014 - 31 March 2015.
