"Lahuerta creates an illuminating dialogue that dismantles stereotypes by revealing a less perfect but more plausible idea of modernity."--Page [4] of cover
Antoni Gaudí : ornament, fire and ashes by Juan José Lahuerta( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Corbusian Internation Modern Style, with its contempt for ornament, imposed itself on architecture, figures like Gaudí (1852-1926) were relegated to the sidelines. In this volume, Lahuerta situates Gaudí in his context and vindicates his fin-de-siècle bohemian modernity. Embodied in such powerful images as the spires of the Sagrada Familia and the flames rising from burning churches during the Tragic Week of 1909, the story takes us back to the Barcelona of the early twentieth century, when class struggle threatened to topple the prevailing capitalist model. Drawing on rare original documents collected over several decades, the author shows that Gaudí was not an isolated eccentric but an architect who was keenly aware of the key theories and major works of his time and the creator of revolutionary technical innocations. His analyses of Gaudí's writings reveal a pioneer in the use of industrial processes to produce ornamental details that seem handmade today. Equally novel was the way that Gaudí exploited his status as a public figure, a 'media personality' whose fame is reflected in the many caricatures of the architect and his buildings in the popular press. His influences on avant-garde artists like Dalí, who admired the edible appearance of the Milà house, and Picasso, who was fascinated by the eroticism of the Batlló house, attest to the importance of Gaudí's contribution to culture. This entertaining volume is part of Columns of Smoke, a series of publications in which Professor Lahuerta turns his perceptive eye on the official narrative of modernity and its protagonists and the relationship between architecture, decoration and the print media"--Back cover

Welcome to Espaiñ-- by Jordi Bernadó( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Spanish and English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bernadó creates projects to express his keen eye and spirit. Despite his having explored American spaces and cities in Japan and Europe, Bernadó has always maintained his focus on Spain, attentive to the evolution of its landscape and the décor of its interiors that is linked to very different worlds. He casts an amusing look at the details that only he is able to see and makes them distinct. His images turn reality into a theatre set. The boundaries between the real and the unlikely become blurred. Beyond Bernadó's vision of the superficial world and his form of satire, one is given a glimpse of his inspired personality on this guided tour of the 20th-century playwrights who have brought the senseless and the ridiculous to the stage, even the grotesque, as embodied in the writings of Cervantes and the paintings of Goya. And behind this cumulus of symbols, there is the depiction of absurdity

El fenómeno del éxtasis : Dalí ca. 1933 by Juan José Lahuerta( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El título de la obra es el de un collage fotográfico y un texto publicado por Dalí en el n{486} 3-4 de la revista Minotaure (1933), justo cuando entra en crisis la posición de Dalí dentro del grupo surrealista ortodoxo dirigido por Breton. El autor analiza ese momento en la evolución de Dalí y el enfrentamiento entre dos formas distintas de entender el surrealismo: el idealismo de Breton y el materialismo de Dalí
Religious painting : Picasso and Max von Moos by Juan José Lahuerta( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious subject matter is not central in 20th century art. One might therefore suspect that, for the avantgarde, the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) would have eclipsed religion altogether. However, as Juan José Lahuerta argues in this book, the war caused a considerable revival of certain themes of religious art. In particular, it intensified Pablo Picasso's lifelong preoccupation with the subject of the Crucifixion. The work of the Swiss surrealist painter Max von Moos (1903-1979) throws additional light on the paradox at hand. In 1938, i.e. one year after Picasso painted 'Guernica', von Moos published an essay entitled 'Religious painting of our time' that addresses some of the critical issues then confronted by church art: issues of communication and expression, realism and abstraction that turn out to offer surprising insights into Picasso's art - if not into modern art altogether
