Did you know? Though he is known as a Spanish painter, architect, and sculptor, El Greco was born on the isle of Crete in Greece, which accounts for his nickname, meaning “The Greek.” Come see El Greco’s painting, "The Holy Family with St. Anne and the Infant St. John the Baptist," on loan from the Museo Nacional del Prado in the DIA’s Five Spanish Masterpieces exhibition opening this Thursday. http://bit.ly/MEBZEt
