Description
Español: El entierro del señor de Orgaz, más conocido como El entierro del conde de Orgaz, es un óleo sobre lienzo pintado en estilo manierista por El Greco entre los años 1586 y 1588. Fue realizado para la iglesia de Santo Tomé de Toledo, (España), donde aun permanece, y es considerada una de las las mejores obras de su autor. El cuadro representa el milagro en el que, según la tradición, San Esteban y San Agustín de Hipona bajaron del Cielo para enterrar personalmente a Gonzalo Ruiz de Toledo, señor de la villa de Orgaz y fallecido en 1323, en la iglesia de Santo Tomé, como premio por su vida ejemplar de devoción, humildad y obras de caridad. El Greco aceptó el encargo de realizar la obra en 1586, algo más de dos siglos y medio después de los hechos que en ella representó.
