Description:

We are familiar with much of the physiognomy of the former retable of Sant Pere de Cubells, even though it was disassembled when the new baroque ensemble was built and its constituent parts were dispersed. It was a mixed-media retable: its main body featured a cycle of paintings dedicated to the apostle, which would have closed with the Crucifixion of Saint Peter, conserved at the museum, and was arranged around a sculpture of the saint, attributed to Pere de Sant Joan (Museu Frederic Marès), a sculptor who hailed from Picardy (France). This is a fragment of the predella, that is, the bottom horizontal section of the retable, which was dedicated to the Joys of Virgin.
