According to the legend, the lactation of Saint Bernard occurred during a dream, and through it he acquired the gift of eloquence. Originally from the Cistercian monastery of Nuestra Señora in Benifazá (Castellón), the panel constitutes a triple homage to Mary, Saint Bernard (founder of the order) and Saint Benedict, who appears in it because the Cistercians belonged to the Be

The principal beams are decorated with secular scenes, including dances, jousts or men fighting monsters, and with the coats-of-arms of Castile and León and those of the Luna and Rojas families. Other decoration includes sacred scenes (the Last Supper and the Last Judgement, for example). Between the transversal beams are panels with alternating castles and lions and elongated hexagonal pan

This is a large gothic altarpiece. Its central panel depicts the Virgin with Child, and behind them, four angels hold the brocade backdrop while four others play musical instruments. Saint Benedict and Saint Bernard, both of the Bendictine order, stand protecting Archbishop Sancho de Rojas —on whom the Virgin is placing the miter— and King Fernando I of Aragon, who is being crowned by the Christ c

Few French paintings from the early fifteenth century have survived and works of this quality and importance are exceptionally rare. The nettle leaves on the sleeves of the donor, who appears here presented by Saint Agnes, have allowed him to be identified as Louis I d’Orléans (1372-1407), brother of the French king, Charles VI and regent from 1393. The high quality of the almost miniaturis

Con toda probabilidad, la pieza formaba parte de la predela de un retablo. Representa san Juan Evangelista en busto, reconocible por el cáliz envenenado que lleva en la mano derecha. Los morfotipos del santo, como los característicos ojos rasgados o la forma gráfica de tratar los rizos de la cabellera, aproximan la pieza a la obra del pintor valenciano Jaume Mateu.

A tall-footed cup whose bowl has the form of a ship’s hull with a pointed prow and a slightly raised stern, while below are a balustroid stem and a tortoise for a foot, all formed by three pieces of rock crystal joined by two enamelled gold mounts. The decoration of the bowl is extremely fine, and may have had a political significance. The mount on the foot was stolen in 1918. Where its authorship
