The Trinity Adored by All Saints

Spanish Painter Spanish

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 601

This altarpiece comes from the royal monastery of Valldecrist, founded by Martin of Aragon. Commissioned by a courtier named Dalmau de Cervelló, it adorned an altar in his burial chapel. The center panel juxtaposes a celestial vision of the Trinity with the expulsion of the rebel angels from heaven. Saint Michael and his legion of angels cast a horde of demons into the jaws of a fiery hell mouth. The side panels commemorate all of the saints recognized at the time, whose ranks include prophets, patriarchs, apostles, evangelists, martyrs, confessors, and women saints. The whole is topped by lunettes depicting the Annunciation and the Crucifixion.
