Modernism. We have all heard of the wonders of Gaudí trencadís, haven’t we? And we have all seen Barcelona’s Sagrada Família, at least in pictures. We suggest now to know the history of Modernism in Barcelona, contemplating and analyzing outstanding representations, and little-known details.
We start with the overview of Fuster House, Baró de Quadras‘s Palace and the emblematic Milà House (La Pedrera), to continue discovering the key feature of Modernism, Passeig de Gràcia, and its “apple of discord”. Here we look at the Batlló House, the greatest exponent of the House-Art work by Gaudí. We also become familiar with names as Güell, Puig i Cadafalch or Domènech i Muntaner.
But we will not only look at the buildings and talk about the authors: we will situate Modernism in historical, social and economic context, to really understand this magnificent period.
