Castile, the birthplace of Ángel Marcos, is full of religious panel paintings dating from the sixteenth century. Its local churches and cathedrals are home to artworks of inestimable value, created by the likes of artists from that period such as Juan de Juni, Pedro and Alonso Berruguete or Esteban Jordán. Having been raised and living with the legacy of these artists, whose impact becomes clearly discernible in his work, Ángel Marcos has been influenced in several ways: through the power of their sculptures, their striking mastery and the attitudes that inform their works. In a particular way he was impressed by how they managed to achieve a harmonious finish in their works, conveyed not only from an architectural but also a narrative point of view.
