Episcopal Palace of la Seu d'Urgell and the Coprince of Andorra

Total decoration of the palace, monumental encaustic works. The images in this document are taken from slides dating from 1997. Given the location and height in the embassy hall of La Seu D'Urgell, the photographs of the ten oval paintings were taken with some difficulty. The works themselves that document the page are a unique document as they were photographed while they were being painted in the painter's studio and subsequently scanned.

The document presents sketches, the works as they were being executed in the painter's studio and their subsequent location in the palace.
