Jerónimo Hernández is one of the most important sculptors of the Seville school. He was a very skillful image-maker, and provided Spain with a complete religious iconography, principally of themes centering around the Virgin and the childhood of Christ. The Resurrected Christ at Quinta Augustia links Mannerist grace with Christian imagery.
