“My First Time”: George Goldner on El Greco’s Toledo Masterpiece


When George Goldner, former Chairman of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, first visited the Met as a child, he was immediately drawn to El Greco’s striking oil painting 'View of Toledo.' Years later, Goldner describes the appeal this piece held for him and why, decades later, El Greco’s landscape has remained personally significant. This video was produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
