The principles of beauty - Antoni Gaudí
It is in these brief and incisive notes, taken from the notebooks written by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) when he was not yet thirty years old, that we find the essential principles that fed his work and his life.
They reveal the Catalan architect's perfect knowledge and total mastery of techniques in all fields (architecture, sculpture, ceramics, glasswork, ironwork, etc.) and his essential contribution to modern art. We also discover the philosophy of this ascetic and religious man, haunted by death, who drew his inspiration from nature and for whom beauty must inhabit, like a transcendence, the smallest aspects of our daily lives.
