El Greco, The Fable
El Greco painted this picture in 1580. He may have based this picture on a picture in Pliny the Elder, or on a local fable. His use of light and shadow would not occur again until the 19th Century. He was ahead of his time. The original painting hangs in the Prado Museum, Madrid, Spain.
