Modern artists showed a new appreciation of El Greco to the extent that his work became a source of inspiration to them.

Special attention was paid to him by Santiago Rusiñol, who not only made copies of the emblematic portrait of A Gentleman with His Hand on His Chest, but also had his portrait painted in the manner of the gentleman by his friend Ramon Pichot.

In order to take part in the tribute to El Greco, we propose that you, like Rusiñol, create a portrait of yourself in the manner of the gentleman.

Visitors who take part in this activity can obtain an extra invitation to visit the temporary exhibition Casas-Rusiñol. Two Modernist Visions (from 14 November 2014 to 1 March 2015).
