This sensitively carved mourner comes from the tomb of Fernando de Antequera, king of Aragon (d. 1416), in the royal pantheon at the abbey of Poblet near Barcelona. In 1417 the Catalan sculptor Pere Oller, who was also active at the cathedrals of Gerona and Vich, was commissioned to carve the tomb.
