Cardinal Fernando Niño de Guevara
El Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

Ahhh....one of my favorite artists. His "View of Toledo" is an incredible piece, and one that I would steal if I could. But this one ain't bad either.

The portrait of the Cardinal is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC (so is one of the views of Toledo). Rumor has it that the museum is falling on hard times, but every time I go I am amazed. I grew up about 30 minutes north, and I was regularly dragged to the Met. Of course they have a grand hall called "Arms And Armor," filled with incredible guns and swords and knights in armor, so while I kicked and screamed, I secretly enjoyed it.
