Portrait of a Doctor
Oil on canvas. 1582 - 1585
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

The figure represented in this painting is identified as a doctor on account of the ring on the thumb of his left hand. This could be Luis Mercado, physician to Philip II, or Rodrigo de la Fuente, a personal friend of El Greco’s and a very influential figure in Toledo at that time. The work is cited in the 1686 inventory of the Alcázar Palace of Madrid, where it remained until the fire of 1

Portrait of a Gentleman
Oil on canvas. 1600 - 1605
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

A portrait of an unidentified gentleman dressed in black with a white ruff. His expressive gaze and the loose and confident brushstrokes denote the high quality of this work, which is very similar to other portraits painted by El Greco at the beginning of the sixteenth century, like the so-called Aged Gentleman (P00806). There are various hypotheses about the identity of the sitter. Some authors b

el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

Both the large ruff the sitter is wearing and the technique used date this portrait to the beginning of the seventeenth century. The loose brushwork (in the form of subtle highlights, dabbing and small but decisive touches of colour) endow the face with great vivacity. Tha face also has great psychological depth. For some time, the sitter was thought to be the poet, Baltasar Eliseo de Medinilla, a

A long bust of a young manwith a gaunt face bearing a moustache and goatee, large dark, almond-shaped eyes and a long, thin nose. His short, dark hair brings out his pale complexion. He is dressed in black, with a short ruff collar, and the lapels and collar of his outer garment suggest it is a sort of cassock, although the lack of definition in the sleeves prevents any greater specificity. The ba

A portrait of an anonymous nobleman, possibly from Toledo, with a narrow white ruff. The background is neutral. This work is considered one of the artist´s finest portraits. With the combination of thin and thick brushstrokes, he manages to bring the sitter extraordinarily close to us. This painting is listed in the inventories of Madrid´s Alcázar Palace from 1666, 1686 and 1700. It is sign
