Art Sunday #11: El Greco – The Burial of the Count of Orgaz


El_Greco_-_The_Burial_of_the_Count_of_OrgazIt’s a beautiful work if you ever are in Toledo, Spain.  Find the cathedral and then look for the side chapel of the Virgin.  Pay the entrance fee and enjoy.  Forget the camera.  No photos allowed of the painting in the chapel.  The chapel is small and the crowds can be large, so you may need to ever so politely elbow your way thru.  Find the self portrait of El Greco in the crowd.
