Modernism in Barcelona

Modernismo was the term which in Spain described the fin-de-siècle style which in Germany and Austria was called Jugendstil, and in France Art Nouveau. Rather than focusing on individual artists, this film presents a wealth of stunning visual material from the period - painting, furniture, sculpture, interior design, stained glass and costume. It also describes the social background of growing industrialism, class unrest, civic rationalization and town planning. Especially notable are sequences on graphic design, posters, magazine covers and illustrations, including the journal L'Avenç, in which the term 'Modernism' was first used in 1881.
