Retable of St Helen

1521
Oil on panel
Cathedral, Gerona

In the centre of the altarpiece, below a Crucifixion scene, stands the giant figure of St Helen. On the sides there are six scenes from the life of St Helen and Constantine. In the lunette the Virgin of Mercy is depicted, while the predella contains an Ecce Homo and four figures of saints. The concept of the design recalls the Lombard painting.
