This makes El Greco the first landscaper in the history of Spanish art. Regarding its enigmatic symbolism, it is thought that it could be related to the mystic spirit that the city was involved during those times.

''El Greco; Asunción de la Virgen''. The overscale folds of El Greco's draperies suggest the use of a lay figure. The effect is to create a sense of unreality - like a mad dream where nothing is as it should be.

El Greco, St James ( San Santiago el Mayor ) El Apóstol que, según la tradición hispana fue enterrado en Santiago de Compostela, suele representarse con conchas, cayado y sombrero. Sin embargo en la pieza del museo porta un pequeño bastón, un símbolo no demasiado evidente del peregrino.
