This small tribute the Museo Carmen Thyssen is paying to El Greco is linked to Rusiñol. It features one of the paintings that were acquired by Rusiñol, Saint Peter in Tears, along with a copy by Zuloaga, a faithful devotee of the Cretan. Another work by Rusiñol copies what was El Greco’s best known portrait, The Nobleman with his Hand on his Chest and, lastly, Pichot depicts Rusiñol identifying with this portrait and showing his deep admiration for El Greco.
