Translation by Alayne Pullen in association with First Edition Translations Ltd. First English Edition: Taschen, 1997. "For almost half a century (1888-1929) Catalonia was the centre of 'modernism'. This architectural movement was closely related to Art Nouveau but its artistic expression was clearly distinct from the related European movements of this period. The Catalonian proponents of Art Nouveau were undoubtedly influenced by the work of Ruskin and Violet-le-Duc, but arrived at their own interpreatation of it, with the emphasis on materials and construction. Not just restricted to a particular region, Modernism was a synthesis of contructional rationalism and lyrical expression, the fusion of new technical possibilities with a refreshingly decorative palette of forms, guaranteeing it a prominent position in the history of the art of the 19th and 20th centuries. The Photographs, plans and elevations shown here illustrate the diversity of works, and provide a documentation of these architects' creative powers" from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped.
