Carmona, Ramón

Ramón Canuto Carmona Urrutia (Pamplona, 1871-1929) was a stone mason in his birth town, with a workshop on the ground floor of house no. 4 in the Paseo de Valencia boulevard. He was later to move his workshop to Curia street and then to Compañía street. His work was basically focussed on funeral commissions, with particular mention of the Mausoleum for Pablo Sarasate at the Cemetery of Pamplona, executed between 1908 and 1909. The tomb contains two plaques (one fragmented) showing him to be the author of the work. Other works by Carmona include the mosaics of the main altarpiece at the parish church of San Lorenzo and, in this same church, the finial of the altar of the Remedios. With regard to the “Monumento a los Fueros” his most outstanding work corresponds to the five statues mounted on the first body, based on models of the city.
