The new technologies offer innovative ways of approaching works of art. In 2011 the Museum demonstrated this potential during the exhibition Goya. Prints of Invention when it developed a specific app for a multi-tactile screen in which high resolution, enlarged images of the prints on display allowed visitors to appreciate details that highlighted Goya’s greatness as a printmaker. The present exhibition on the Museum’s two paintings by El Greco now offers an ideal opportunity to learn more about the artist’s technique through macro-photographs of details from x-radiographs and infra-red reflectographs of the works and from stratigraphic micro-samples of the pigments used.
From inside the painting and through a remarkable, participative experience, visitors will be able to obtain a better understanding of El Greco’s almost Impressionist technique, his compositional audacity and the iconographical complexity of his work.
