Description: 

Antonio Gallardo Ballart, over the years, has gradually put together a set of brilliant and incomparable pieces. Thanks to his generosity and trust, we are able to enjoy a conscientiously prepared selection of such works. This acquisition constitutes the most outstanding contribution to the medieaeval collection over the past few years. In the near future, these pieces will come to form part of the permanent itinerary through the Museum’s room exhibition.

The selection includes examples of Romanesque mural painting and, above all, ofGothic panel painting, from the XII to the XVI centuries. A great part of the pieces are of Catalan origin, with figures like Serra brothersLluís Borrassà and Bernat Martorell.  Constituting the remainder examples from the rest of the Hispanic world, like the fragment from the Abbey of San Pedro de Arlanza and the panel associated with Nicolás Francés. Moreover, has already been included a work from the Renaissance. This acquisition constitutes another token of the role civil society in general and private collectors in particular have played in building up our collections at the Museu Nacional.
