Summary In 2014, to mark the four-hundredth anniversary of El Greco's death and the appeal of his art in America, major museums mounted exhibitions of paintings which came to their collections as a result of "Grecomania", a collecting trend seemingly inspired by Knoedler Gallery's exhibition of the artist's work in 1904. The Frick Collection's symposium focused on the development of American collectors' taste for El Greco's works.
