    Exhibition catalogue "El Greco and Modernism" shown at the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, Germany (April 28 - August 12, 2012).

    The sensational oeuvre of El Greco (1541-1614) was first introduced to a broader German audience in 1910 through Julius Meier-Graefe’s journal, The Spanish Journey. Numerous artists subsequently caught “Greco fever” when they first saw larger groups of his works in exhibitions in Munich in 1911 and Düsseldorf in 1912. Max Beckmann, Oskar Kokoschka, Max Oppenheimer, Ludwig Meidner, and especially members of the Blaue Reiter—August Macke, Franz Marc, Albert Bloch, and others—recognized in El Greco a father figure for the Modernist movement, mentioning him in the same breath as Paul Cézanne.
