Publication of the article ŤAportación al mapa del brocado aplicado en el territorio histórico de Gipuzkoa: nuevos casos, filiación entre modelos y evolución estilísticať, in the magazine Ge-conservacion, 19(1).

This article presents three sculptural works in Gipuzkoa, Spain/Basque Country), in which the presence of the polychrome technique of applied brocade had not been detected to date. These are the altarpieces of the Oratorio de Loiola (1498-1512) and San Martín de Azpeitia (1521) and the carving of the Virgin and Child of Zumaia (ca. 1500).

The analysis of their brocade models has motivated the formal revision of this technique in the territory, establishing complex affiliations between altarpieces located in the region and even in more distant places. At the same time, a simple stylistic arrangement of them is proposed, because their production period coincides with the transition of two artistic styles: the late Gothic and the early Renaissance.
