Madonna of Santa Maria de Bellpuig de les Avellanes: a masterpiece by Bartomeu de Robió.

The Madonna of Bellpuig de les Avellanes is one of the most affecting images of the Mother of God in Catalan Gothic art. Bartomeu de Robió, the leading sculptor of the Lleida school of the fourteenth century, sculpted this piece with a great delicacy of touch, while lavishing special care on the details and texture of the Virgin’s clothing. Its high technical prowess shows that de Robió had assimilated the advances in technical expression and imagery that were then being forged by the Renaissance in Tuscany and other places.
