    Description:

    In Spanish churches the reredos grew to be as wide as the nave and reaching to the vaulting of the roof. The Plateresque grille made between 1518 and 1523 by Bartolomé of Jaén, is considered as a masterpiece of Spanish metalwork. It is structured by way of an altarpiece, into three bodies whose dimensions drop in height, five vertical sections and cresting, which include the Crucifixion and scenes of the Passion of Christ.

    The Capilla Real was the mausoleum of the Spanish royal family, inclu…

    Description:

    View shows tombs (1514-1517) of Ferdinand II and Isabella by Domenico Fancelli, and of Joanna and Philip I (from 1519) by Bartolomé Ordóñez. Some of Isabella’s art collection is visible.

    The Capilla Real was the mausoleum of the Spanish royal family, including the Catholic Kings, until the founding of the Escorial by Philip II. The influence of Cisneros is evident in the severe plainness of the building, although the splendid vaults and portals are among the finest in the Hispano-Flemish…

    Description:

    The Pazzi Chapel was intended to emulate the Old Sacristy at S Lorenzo. (It has recently been suggested by Tractenberg that the Pazzi Chapel is not by Brunelleschi but by Michelozzo di Bartolomeo, a theory that has not yet received universal acceptance.) The design may date from 1423. Owing to the patron’s reluctance to make funds available, the Pazzi Chapel was not built until 1442-ca. 1465, after the death of Pazzi (who was buried in Santa Croce) and mostly after the death of Brunellesc…
