Discover the most important modernist figures in Barcelona.
Modernism is a cultural movement which had its heyday in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, embodying the most renovative tendencies in literature, theatre, architecture, fine arts, decoration and the design of furniture and other objects. In the Catalan Countries it was known as Modernisme. The Eixample district of Barcelona became the focus of “modernist” at the end of the 19th century.
Modernism as a style is characterised, among other things, by the predominance of curved lines, asymmetry, a dynamism of forms, the use of plant motifs, and the merging of the functional and the aesthetic. In a period of industrial predominance, modernisme combined the use of new materials with a profound reappraisal of trades and traditional elements.
In the field of architecture the most important modernist figures were Domènech i Montaner, Puig i Cadafalch and Antoni Gaudí. In fact, Gaudí is the city’s most internationally renowned and emblematic architect, his buildings are a must-see attraction
