Una Obra de Arte Bella

My Spanish teacher showed us this painting yesterday during class. We are learning words for things dealing with art such as pincel, autorretrato, perfil, pintura, retrato, mural, realismo, surrealismo, etc.
This painting is by El Greco and is titled Vista de Toledo. It really struck me. The first thing that I really noticed was that the city is depicted much more darkly than the green, vibrant landscape around it. I feel that El Greco was trying to say that nature is cleaner and more full of life than anything man could create. But that’s just me 🙂
Anyways, I just felt I should share this obra de arte bella with you.
