This work deals with the mural paintings of Catalonia from Early Christian times through the Romanesque period. The author has treated all the extant monuments and has devoted some space to a consideration of frescoes known only through literary sources. The first part of the book contains a detailed chronological study of the paintings; the second discusses the more general problems of technique, iconography, and the relation of Catalonian painting to that of the rest of Europe. The book contains over sixty full-page illustrations, which form a complete photographic record of the subject.
