I am very sorry that El Greco did not live to be as old as Titian. At eighty or ninety he would have been producing an almost abstract art — a cubism without cubes, organic, purely visceral. What pictures he would then have painted! Beautiful, thrilling, profoundly appalling.

– Aldous Huxley, “Meditations on El Greco,” Collected Essays (1958)
