Education and Training in Art
Youth Lifestyle:A lot of pieces of El Greco's life is unknown, but mostly his life as a youth. It is known that he did not come from a poor family, and was well educated. He was of a Greek Orthodox religion, and this was reflected in many of his early paintings.
El Greco was a culturally sophisticated artist, for he was familiar with Greek, Latin, Italian, and Spanish literature. Studying and becoming familiar with many subjects and ideas was a big part of his life. Throughout his painting career, El Greco was starting to become a more naturalist artist instead of a religious painter.
