Sacristía Mayor – Catedral de Santa María de Burgos by neobit

Ocupan el espacio de una de las capillas de la girola; fue construida en 1765 con los proyectos de Fray José de San Juan de la Cruz, en estilo barroco del período rococó. Llama la atención su cúpula y cascarones con yeserías pintadas y, sobre todo, la gran cajonería y retablos en los que trabajaron José Cortés, Manuel Romero y en las pinturas de los frontales, sobre temas de la Virgen, Lucas Jordán y artistas de su taller.

This was built on the site of one of the chapels of the ambulatory; it was built in 1765 using projects drawn up by Fray José de San Juan de la Cruz, in the baroque style of the rococo period. Particularly noteworthy are the dome and the cascarones (vaults in quarter spheres) with painted plasterwork and above all the grand chest of drawers and altarpieces which were the work of José Cortés and Manuel Romero. The paintings on the front relate to the Virgin Mary and were painted by Lucas Jordán and artists from his workshop.

Chapel by ForceMedia

An interior shot of the Italian Chapel on Lamb Holm, Orkney. An incredible story and a very beautiful place to visit if you’re ever in Orkney. All of the artwork was painted by hand by Italian prisoners of war during the second World War.

(Catalan battle cry), the defence of Gallipoli, the two aforementioned chroniclers, King Peter m, the taking of the Acropolis in Athens, the assassination of Roger de Flor, the Catalan vengeance and the triumphant boarding of the ships in the Bosphorus. The ceiling depicts the defence of the tower of Adrianopolis.
The paintings were done in oil on canvas previously covered with gold and silver leaf.
