MuseoPics - Photos of MNAC Museum Gothic Altar Panels, Pictures & Images { 231 images } Created 1 Feb 2015

Pictures, images, photos of painted Gothic Altar Panels exhibited at the National Museum of Catalan Art, Barcelona. The pictures of these exhibits show one of the most important painted Gothic altar panel collections in Europe. Due to the remoteness of the villages and towns in northern Spain in the late Middle ages, many medieval painted altar panels survived in remote churches. The MNAC started collecting and preserving artworks from these churches when the altar panels stared to be exported to the USA in the 19th century. The images of the MNAC altar panels show the vibrance and creativity of Catalan Medieval artist. Subject matter ranges from the “Last Judgement “ which was a major preoccupation of medieval artists, to depictions of the loire of saints, the Virgin Mary and Christ. Many of the Altar panels have a series of small cameos that show scenes from the life of a saint or Christ. These are arranged in lines like a cartoon to create a narrative that is simple for the illiterate to follow. The simple direct style of these Catalan Gothic artworks build directly upon the style of Byzantine orthodox art. Its direct approach does not depend upon realism and the message is told simply and is surrounded by decorative designs that add richness to the artworks. Pictures and images of Gothic Altar Panels exhibits from the National Museum of Catalan Art can be bought on line as photo art prints or downloaded as high resolution stock photos.
