Original Language: Spanish
Barcelona has long been a model of interesting architecture and ingenious urban layout, and this year, with the Summer Olympics and a newly released study by critic Robert Hughes ( Barcelona , LJ 1/92), the city is on many people's minds. This book is really a photographic survey of the city's public monuments; the range of artworks tells a compelling story about modern sculpture and its relationship to landscape. Text and imagery are well balanced and suitably descriptive. Permanyer, a Barcelona journalist, draws evocative word pictures to accompany works by such masters as Miro, Chillada, Tapies, Castillo, and Botero, among others. Art in important public spaces is discussed in terms of aesthetic interrelatedness. This book will be of interest to art historians and travelers alike. Because Barcelona is so vividly portrayed, it will be useful for general and specialized libraries and their readers.
