Barcelona: Robert Hughes on Gaudí

In Robert Hughes’s long book on Barcelona the best chapters are on the nineteenth century.  The account of Gaudí, ‘The Hermit in the Cave of Making’ (ch.8) is superb. Hughes’s programme on Gaudí is characteristically opinionated and beautifully written. It’s available in seven chunks on YouTube. Here is a link to part 1 of Antonio Gaudí: God’s Architect.
