Day.17.

An art piece

El Greco, "The View of Toledo"

Obviously, it looks much better in person at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but I absolutely love this painting.  El Greco, was active between 1577-1614, which I feel makes this painting even more impressive.  The colors are so ahead of its time, very dark but at the same time the grass and sky is vibrant.  I love the buildings, they don’t look like the stiff, perspective driven ones of the Renaissance and Mannerism.
