    Steve, do you know anything about the painter, Arimani, who painted the Pieta in the Chapel at the Monastery of Montserrat? I have been searching for a couple of days now, but can’t find anything on that artist. I came across your Blog while trying to find the artist who painted it. My companion also took a photo of it while we were there, and several friends have asked about the artist, but I didn’t know who painted it, until finding it on your blog with that beautiful photo.
