A numismatic look… at the Gothic, and Renaissance and Baroque galleries

The richness of the artistic holdings of the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya allow many interpretations and, hopefully, can inspire each person to construct a gallery visit according to his or her own interests. The celebration of the XVI National Numismatic Congress is a fortunate occasion for suggesting to its attendees and, in passing, to all visitors, a tour of the recently remodeled Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque art collections. We want this to be interesting, stimulating and entertaining and, as may be opportune, we wish to point out some images concerning coinage, money, and numismatics, and related materials that are, by tradition or extension, an object of study or collecting in numismatic cabinets.
