Catalan Frescoes 1285 - 1300
Iglesia de San Fructuoso, Nicolás y Juan el evangelista — Bierge, Huesca
This 13th century church is noted for its exceptional wall paintings done by the anonymous Second Master of Bierge from around 1285 to 1300. The life of Nicolás is featured as one large panel, now in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, Barcelona. There are an additional three scenes portraying St. Nicholas that have been restored to their original location in the church.
The three Nicholas scenes are in place to the left of the window. The paintings were removed and mounted on canvas in 1949. All the images from this wall were put back into their original places in 1994.
