Short Course: Modernist art and architecture in Europe and the USA
Modernism reshaped tastes and exerts an enduring influence on global culture. This short course follows modernist art and architecture in Europe and the USA from its origins in the late 19th century to its flourishing in the first half of the 20th century.
This lecture will explore the origins and development of Modernism in Barcelona. Whilst Antoni Gaudí enjoys the lion’s share of attention for his extravagant architecture in this genre, the talk will also showcase less known but equally fabulous ‘movers’ and ‘shakers’ who have contributed to this period of urban development in Barcelona.
