MuseoPic - Photos of MNAC Museum Gothic Sculptures, Pictures & Images { 119 images } Created 1 Feb 2015

MuseoPics on line photos of Gothic Statues exhibited at the National Museum of Catalan Art, Barcelona. The pictures of these exhibits show Gothic religious statues made in Catalonia, Spain in the Middle ages. One of the great Gothic statue exhibits in the museum is the Gothic wood sculpture of the Head of Christ by Jaume Cascalls. Carved alabaster with polychrome and gilt remains. This head must have belonged to a Recumbent Christ which could have formed part of a sculptural group of the Holy Sepulchre. It probably came from the chapel of Corpus Christi of the convent of Sant Agustí Vell, Barcelona. Jaume Cascalls is one of the most important sculptors of the fourteenth century in Catalonia. This is borne out by his involvement over almost thirty years with the project of the royal pantheon in Poblet for King Peter the Ceremonious and with other large undertakings of the time. Today, on stylistic grounds, he is credited with this 'Head of Christ', which must have formed part of a sculptural group of the Holy Sepulchre, presumably from the church of the convent of Sant Agustí Vell in Barcelona. The National Museum of Catalan Art has an important collection of Catalan sculptures whose subject matter range from depictions of Christ on the Croos to Gothic wall panels. Pictures and images of Gothic Statues exhibits from the National Museum of Catalan Art can be bought on line as photo art prints or downloaded as high resolution stock photos.
