I hadn't realised that the painter El Greco who spent most of his painting life in Spain was from Crete. This biography, written by a Contemporary Cretan, was an interesting exploration of his life although I was still bemused about why he made his life in one of the more oppressive European countries of the 16th and 17th centuries.
