View of Toledo

0 out of 5


It is one of the two surviving landscape paintings by El Greco. Landscape paintings were banned in Spain during the time so View of Toledo is also considered as the first Spanish landscape painting.
It is considered as one of the best depictions of the sky in Western art
The painting is not an accurate representation of Toledo. El Greco took liberties with the structures in the painting to include the cathedral which was not visible from the chosen perspective.
