    El Greco

    Jew Score:



    (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)
    1541 – April 7, 1614

    We thought we knew the deal with El Greco. It's right in the name: The Greek, Domenikos Theotokopoulos, moved from Crete to Spain and painted some morbid, morbid pictures.

    But then...

    See, in this Jew-finding world, there are no absolutes. There are no simple answers. There are no shortages of theories. Like the one that says that El Greco, was, well, you know...

    The evidence? Flimsy at best. He lived in Toledo, which had a sizable Jewish population. He had Jewish neighbors. He potentially had Jewish mistresses. None of it seems to add up.

    But then...

    Considering how morbid El Greco's paintings are, there is a chance, right?

    Verdict: Sadly, Not a Jew.
