El Greco The Assumption of the Virgin OrnamentMUSEUM MASTERWORKS INC.
This ornament features details of El Greco's The Assumption of the Virgin, 1577-79.
With no major commissions in Rome, El Greco moved on to Spain in 1577. He quickly earned a major commission for the altarpiece for the Church of Santo Domingo el Antiguo in Toledo, the result being the monumental The Assumption of the Virgin (1577–79). Of a scale and format that he had never previously attempted, The Assumption became a showpiece for the artist as he attempted to mold a new career for himself in Spain.
