MEDIEVAL SCULPTOR, Spanish
La Lonja, Palma de Majorca
The picture shows a detail of the main door of La Lonja.
Some of the most distinguished Majorcan work of the fifteenth century was done by the sculptor and architect Guillermo Sagrera, who built the "Lonja" of Palma. In one of the doorways of this edifice stands the splendid figure of an archangel, revealing an extraordinary mastery of technique and a concept of form that owes something to the German as well as the Burgundian spirit.
