NameBarcelona and Modernity: Picasso, Gaudí, Miró, Dalí
DescriptionBy William H. Robinson, Jordi Falgàs, and Carmen Belen Lord, with foreword by Robert Hughs, 2007. Published in conjunction with the exhibition “Barcelona and Modernity: Gaudí to Dalí” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, March 7, 2007–June 3, 2007. During the years after the “September Revolution” of 1868, Barcelona experienced tremendous industrial growth and emerged as the most politically and culturally progressive city in Spain. This volume examines a remarkable 71-year period when Barcelona transformed itself into one of the most dynamic centers of modernist art and architecture in Europe. Focusing on the Catalan Renaixença, Modernisme, Noucentisme, avant-garde movements of the early 20th century, and artistic reactions to the Spanish civil war, essays by an extraordinary international team of scholars offer new insights into the work of Pablo Picasso, Antoni Gaudí, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, and scores of others, by setting them in context with the art of their teachers, colleagues, and rivals. Featuring more than 250 works in a variety of media, this intriguing book explores how Catalan artists derived inspiration from local traditions while contributing their own innovations to international modernism. 524 pages, 600 full-color illustrations, 9 in. x 12 1/4 in. Available in hardcover (clothbound, with jacket), or paper.
