Seguerò altarpiece, Pere Mates, 16th century. Oil/wood.

This altarpiece comes from the Santa Maria de Segueró church (in the Garrotxa region). The collection includes eight panels showing scenes from the life of the Mother of God, with the figures of four apostles, one panel showing the creation and on showing the final judgement.

The artist signed the work with his monogram -MTAS- shown in the coat of arms of the soldiers in the panel showing the Resurrection, and in the pike held by St. Thomas the Apostle. This work, along with the "Sant Pere de Montagut altarpiece", also on display in the museum, are considered two of his best works.
