<br />
National Art Museum of Catalonia, Barcelona. MNAC 15804<br />
<br />
The Romanesque paintings depict scenes from the life and the martyrdom of St. Andrew. At its centre is a theophany with Christ Pantocrator (Majesty) surrounded by a Mandorla around which is a tetramorph with the symbols of the four evangelists, St Matthew the man, St Mark the lion, St Luke the ox, and John the eagle.. Eastern influences are especially evident in this magnificent altar frontal, which has an elegant palette of colours, with sophisticated soft flesh tones. The work seems most  likely to have come from the workshop of  highly skilled Greek painters,  which was installed in the vicinity of the monastery of Sant Marti Canigo and signed at least one of their works (now defunct) as Magister Alexander.

The iconography of the Romanesque frescoes of the Apse of Santa Maria d’Aneu shows the strong intellectualization of Romanesque art, which often waves the narrative in favor of symbolic concepts. Images of the Old Testament prophecy occupy the central part of the apse: the Seraphim of Isaiah's vision, burning embers that purify the words of Isaiah and of Elijah and four-wheel chariot of fire of Yahweh according to the vision of Ezekiel.
