In the Gothic Art Collection we find works from different stylistic phases using the various different techniques (mural paintings; panel paintings; stone, ivory and wood sculpture; metalworking and enamels) of the period stretching from the end of the 13th to the 15th century. The pieces from Catalonia form the richest group, but there are also pieces from other territories within the former Crown of Aragon, especially from Aragon and Valencia, and, to a lesser extent, Majorca. Some of the more noteworthy artists that worked in Catalonia during the period include the sculptors Jaume Cascalls and Pere Sanglada, and the painters Pere Serra, Lluís Borrassà, Bernat Martorell and Jaume Huguet.
