El Greco (1541- April 7, 1614) was a painter, scupltor and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. El Greco was born in Crete which was at the time part of the Republic of Venice, and the center of Post-Byzantine art. He trained and became a master within that tradition before traveling at age 26 to Venice, as other Greek artists had done. El Greco is regarded as a precursor of both Expressionism and Cubism. El Greco has been characterized by modern scholars as an artist so individual that he belongs to no conventional school. He died on April 7, 1614.

Henri Matisse (1869- 1954)

Henri Matisse (December 31, 1869- November 3, 1954) was a French artist, known for his use of color and his fluid, brilliant and original draftsmanship. As a draftsman, printmaker and sculptor, but principally as a painter, Matisse is one of the best known artist of the 20th century. Although he was initially labeled as a Fauve (wild beast), by the 1920s, he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of color and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art. Matisse died of a heart attack at the age of 84 in 1954.
