"The most extraordinary painter that ever came along back then" and that he was "maybe three or four centuries ahead of his time."

El Greco (1541–1614) was a painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. "El Greco" (The Greek) was a nickname, referring to his ethnic Greek origin, and the artist normally signed his paintings with his full birth name in Greek letters, (Doménikos Theotokópoulos). His dramatic and expressionistic style was met with puzzlement by his contemporaries but found appreciation in the 20th century. He is regarded as a precursor of both Expressionism and Cubism. He is best known for tortuously elongated figures and often fantastic or phantasmagorical pigmentation, marrying Byzantine traditions with those of Western painting. He has been characterized by modern scholars as an artist so individual that he belongs to no conventional school. 

El Greco is loved not just by experts and art lovers but also by ordinary people. Epitomizing the consensus of El Greco's impact, Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States, said in April 1980 that El Greco was "the most extraordinary painter that ever came along back then" and that he was "maybe three or four centuries ahead of his time."
