Sculpture

Between religious fervour and modernity. Sculptures which explain the history of Spain in their own way. The list of works of sculpture produced in Spain is endless. The influence of Catholicism throughout history produced a rich and varied iconography. From the bas-reliefs sculpted on church capitals and tympanums through to Baroque images, Spanish museums are home to an inexhaustible wealth of sculptures. In addition to this, the 19th century saw the emergence of a more unconstrained style of sculpture whose later development followed the precepts of successive avant-garde movements.
