Abstract:

"Anyone who visits Barcelona today will come across the works of Antoni Gaudi, 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, including 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 Gaudi's life was full of contradictions. This book provides a sweeping study of his entire career, presenting his complete works via texts and illustrations."--Amazon.
