Saint Hippolyte curing the Leg of the Oxherd Peter

1419 - 1421. Mixed method on panel. Room 051B

This painting formed part of an altar piece commissioned by Canon Ferrer Despujol for the Chapel of Saint Lawrence in Barcelona Cathedral. It is a characteristic work of the final stage of the painter’s activity, with a special emphasis on narrative and the figures are in modern dress, typical of international Gothic. Mary, Jesus and four angels are shown in the room in which the miracle takes place.
