Manner of Doménikos Theotokópoulos, called El Greco
SAINT JAMES THE GREATER

Catalogue Note

The present work is based on a painting by El Greco and his workshop from circa 1605–10 which depicts Saint James the Greater in three-quarter length,1 and which forms part of an apostolate commissioned for the Toledo Cathedral. Another very similar St. James, from circa 1610–14 and also part of an apostolate, is today in the Museo del Greco, Toledo.
