Item description for Gaudi (Midsize) by Robert Descharnes...

A detailed description of Antoni Gaud - the man and his work

Wherever they go, anyone who visits Barcelona today will come across the works of Antoni Gaud - the architect who has attracted art-lovers from all over the world to Spain. It was here, in the capital of Catalonia, that the famous master of architecture produced nearly all of his works. Villas for the well-to-do bourgeoisie, the expansive Gell Park (which today is open to the public), and the famous church designed in honour of the Holy Family - a project which was begun over 100 years ago and has yet to be completed.

Antoni Gaud's life was full of contradictions. As a young man he joined the Catalonian nationalist movement and was critical of the church; toward the end of his life he devoted himself completely to the construction of one single church. As a young man Gaud had a liking for the glamour of social life and the looks of a dandy; in old age, on the other hand, he lived a spartan life.

Antoni Gaud never married and devoted his life entirely to his art - architecture. His works have been acclaimed as "soothing oases in a desert of functional buildings", as "precious gems in the uniform grey of rows of houses," and the master himself was acclaimed as the "Dante of architecture".

This book provides a detailed description of Gaud the man and his work. The complete works are documented in a wide range of colour photos.
