El Greco "The Burial of Count Orgaz" (1586) Church of Saint Tomé, Toledo
"I told Saint-Loup that, if he had been home the previous evening, he might, while contemplating the apocalpyse in the sky, at the same time have watched on the ground (as in El Greco's Burial of Count Orgaz, in which the two planes are distinct and parallel) a first-rate farce." — Time Regained
