van Hensveregen, Gijs,
Gaudi.
NY, HarperCollins, (2001). 1st ed 1st ptg. VG in VG DJ. Arguably the most famous architect in the world at the time of his death in 1926, Antonio Gaudi had created some of the most. controversial masterpieces of modern architecture, as exotic as they were outrageous. A fervent Catholic with an unstinting love for Catalonia, his homeland, an innovator who was profoundly orthodox, and a hermit who chose lifelong celibacy after being rejected by the woman he loved. Both brilliant and eccentric, a product of his time, this human and humorous biography brings the man and architect powerfully to life.
