The altar and tabernacle for the cathedral of Oviedo

Ca. 1869. Albumen on photographic paper. Not on display

The cathedral of Oviedo, in the nineteenth century, undergoes the reform of the main chapel completed with the installation of the new altar and tabernacle in 1869, created by the architect Juan de Madrazo and Kuntz. In 1866, Madrazo began to project the altar and tabernacle after having traveled to the city of Oviedo to know firsthand the presbytery and the altarpiece of the cathedral that provided the idea for the final de-sign. Finally, it is in the year 1868, after having been transferred all the pieces that composed the altar and tabernacle, when Madrazo returns to Oviedo to take charge of the shipment to receive it in the cathedral. The design of the altar and tabernacle included the influence of the French architect Viollect-le-Duc, and the taste of it for the recreations of medieval pieces used to furnish Gothic-style buildings.
