Taddeo Gabbi, one of Giotto's most brilliant disciples, painted this Nativity when he was still part of Giotto's workshop. The painting has many of Giotto's hallmarks such as  spatial illusionism or the reality of figures that can be seen in the nativity of the Peruzzi Chapel.<br />

Taddeo Gabbi, uno de los discipulos mas brillantes de Giotto, debio pintar esta Natividad cuando aun formaba parte del taller del maestro. En ella se ven las conquistas de la "revolucion giottesca", como el illusioismo espacial o el realismo de las figuras. Maria arropa a Jesus dentro del establo, mientras los sobrevuela un grupo de angeles. La posicion de uno de ellos y la presencia de una oveja indican que la composicion se completaba a la izquierda con el Anuncio a los pastores. En primer termino aparecen un pensativo Jose y las dos parteras que susurran, un recurso ya utilizado pr Giotto en los frescos de la Capilla Peruzzi.

  • Gothic statue 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.<br />
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 break in the neck suggests it belonged to a full-length recumbent Christ, like the one kept at Sant Feliu in Girona and also attributed to Cascalls.
