These two panels depicting the Annunciation and the Baptism of Christ are the only ones to survive from a lost altarpiece of Cardona. They came to the museum following the purchase of the unique nineteenth-century collection of salt objects of Fr. Riba. Both are the work of Pere Vall, a painter in the style of Pere Serra who was very active in Cardona from the turn of the 15th century. While not generally a very innovative painter, he was able to find his own style based on the simplicity and clarity of his compositions.
