Juan de Juni

Cultural background

Castilian School

Original title

Inmaculada de Juan de Juni
Ourense Province Archaeological Museum
Ourense, Galicia

This image, one of the artistic gems of the museum, brought about the direct influence of Castilian sculpture of the time, thanks to the important artist Juan de Juni.

The image, which keeps its original polychromy, stands out because of its corporeal shape and sumptuous clothing. Its sturdy volume reminds us of Michelangelo.

The Inmaculada was documented by Juan de Juni, who mentions it in his will as a commission by Doña Inés Pérez de Belmonte for her funeral chapel in the Convent of San Francisco in Ourense. It was made in the final stage of the artist's work life. His work is the main contribution to Spanish Renaissance sculpture, together with Berruguete's, which left a lasting imprint in most of the Galician Mannerist sculptures until the beginning of the 17th century.
