Antonio Gaudí

nouveau art

Gaudí, Antonio (Antoni Gaudí i Cornet; 1852–1926), Spanish architect. His fluid, intricate, and bizarre designs express Art Nouveau. He used glazed tiles to color his sculpted architecture. He worked mostly in Barcelona, creating the Casa Milá, the Park Güell, and his masterpiece, the Church of the Holy Family (1882–1930).
