Sample text

Not only does this series of commissions document Gaudí’s reflection on Catalan traditions of architecture, but they also serve as a testament to the economic development of Barcelona and a new class of wealthy patrons; it is interesting to note that a number of these houses combined offices and warehouse space for the commodities which their owners dealt in. To celebrate the strength of Catalan capital Gaudí looked to the past for paradigms of the region’s strength and achievement, such as the renaissance palace or the medieval castle.

Conservative positions such as these contrasted with the more objective position of Domènech and other more radical lines. While Picasso lived in the city before moving to Paris he identified himself with a group of artists, including Santiago Rusinyol and Ramón Casas, who met in the famed Le Quatre Gats cafe. Gaudí had nothing to do with the more decadent and anarchic cultural activities of these gatherings. He thought along more conservative lines and sided with the establishment as represented by churchmen like Torres y Bages or his other wealthy patrons.

In addition, accounts suggest that his conservative views could also be critical and his personal austerity, combined with his benevolent concern for the poor, prompted a critical stance of the Church. Thus Gaudí’s own independent thought serves to remind us that it was in his workshop with his architects and craftsmen that he designed, forged and carved his response to theology as well as to the nationalistic concerns of Catalan culture. 18.
