Antoni Gaudi'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 Gaudi 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 Gaudi 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 Gaudi the man and his work. The complete works are documented in a wide range of colour photos.
