Overview

Gaudi: A Biography by Gijs van Hensbergen

At the time of his death in 1926, Antonio Gaudí was arguably the most famous architect in the world. He had created some of the greatest and most controversial masterpieces of modern architecture that were as exotic as they were outrageous. But little is known about the shadowy figure behind the swirling, vivid buildings that inspired the Surrealists. A fervent Catholic with an unstinting love for Catalonia, his homeland, an innovator who was profoundly orthodox, and a hermit who chose lifelong celebacy, having been rejected by the woman he loved, Gaudí was both brilliant and eccentric.

This illustrated biography captures the power and importance of Gaudí's work and the unique spirit of Catalan culture.
