View of Toledo is one of the most famous landscape paintings of all. Painted in between 1596-1600, it depicts a wide shot of the Spanish town Toledo, where he settled. It is one of only two surviving landscapes painted by El Greco in his later years. It is known for being painted unlike any other style that was popular at the time. With a sharp contrast between the landscape, the clouds and the sky, it is a benchmark for landscape paintings. It is hung in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, America.
