MCM

Baroque Art

The MCM has a great collection of art specially focussed on the carved and polychromic wooden altarpieces. This vast exhibition, which goes from the 17th to the 18th century, illustrates the Baroque Catalan altarpieces production. In those centuries, Manresa had become an artistic production centre with plenty of workshops and authors that spread the masterpieces all over Catalonia and the south of France.
