A fast-paced novel of conjecture and surprises



core definition

Modernista was the term used for art nouveau in Spain, especially in the Catalan version of the style.

explanatory context

Barcelona was the centre of art nouveau in Spain and Gaudi, who worked there, has become recognised as an oustanding art nouveau artist. Domenech y Montaner's Palau de la Musica Catalana built 1906-8 is a notable art nouveau building (although eclecticly adopting historicist styles).
