press release

The central showpiece of this small tribute will be El Greco’s painting The Burial of Christ of the National Gallery of Athens. The painting will be accompanied by two Pieta (Lamentation). The first one belongs to the collection of the Hispanic Society of America and the second one to a private collection. Both works will be exhibited digitally in almost actual size.

The simultaneous presentation of the works of El Greco along with the archaeological exhibition ‘Beyond’ invites the visitors to see together diverse masterpieces that touch upon a common, universal theme: death and immortality of the soul. The visitor will be able to find interesting correlations through a number of different prisms: time, religion, society.
