El Greco is considered the father of mannerism and also one of the greatest painters of his generation, if not of all time.

It is often considered a definite break from Classical painting, as it emphasizes symbols and ideas through the use of forms, lines, shapes and colors; fighting the representational nature of the former. Even though both are opposite tendencies, this didn’t stop emerging artists from combining them to reach new levels of expressions, as is the case with Gustave Moreau, a French painter born in Paris in 1826. Moreau’s work is prominently history paintings, but it is his use of Symbolism that makes his artwork so intricate and complex, which forces viewers to navigate the piece to be able to understand it.
