Catalan Modernism encompassed all artistic disciplines, although its incidence was especially noticeable in architecture. Figures such as Antoni Gaudí, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Lluís Domènech i Montaner and Josep Maria Jujol collaborated closely with the best craftsmen of the time to design fantastical buildings, which helped place Barcelona at the forefront of the international art scene.

Considered the Catalan equivalent of Art Nouveau, Modernisme was an artistic movement of great beauty that reached its peak in Barcelona between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, coinciding with a time of profound social, economic and technological changes.

This photographic book brings together the most emblematic works of Modernist architecture, such as La Pedrera, the Palau de la Música Catalana, Casa Lleó i Morera, Casa Amatller and Hospital de Sant Pau.
This book, published by Dosde, also unveils the historical origins of Modernisme, and analyzes its impact on fields such as jewellery, sculpture and the decorative arts. Therefore the reader is provided with a global vision of this unrepeatable movement, which ended up becoming the hallmark of an era marked by the desire for renewal.
