Modernisme (Art Noveau) in Barcelona

Posted on 6 March 2009 in Barcelona, always!

Barcelona’s Eixample neighborhood, an extension of the city planned by engineer Ildefons Cerdà and begun in 1860, is undoubtedly one of the most unique urban spaces in the world.

Modernisme, also known in English as Catalan modernism, was the Catalan equivalent to a number of fin-de-siècle art movements, such as Symbolism, Decadence and Art Nouveau or Jugendstil, from roughly 1888 to 1911. The modernisme movement was centred on the city of Barcelona, and its best-known exponent were the architects Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, both with works listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites buildings.
