Description
Religious art is not always created solely by those in the community it serves, but its production in the multicultural society of late medieval Spain was particularly complicated. Jewish and Christian artists worked together in ateliers producing both retablos (large multi-paneled altarpieces) as well as Latin and Hebrew manuscripts. Jews and converses (Jews who had converted to Christianity) were painters and framers of retablos, while Christians illuminated the pages of Hebrew manuscripts. With beautiful color reproductions—some spreading across two pages—this catalog provides a fascinating study of the production of altarpieces in Spain under the Crown of Aragon, and the artistic overlap between the Jewish and Christian communities that this industry spawned.
