Details

Catalonia boasts an extraordinary cultural heritage. Its lively Mediterranean villages have inspired artists such as Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, Pablo Picasso, George Braque, Salvador Dali, and many others. Forever linked to three major art movements – Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism – Catalonia has played a critical role in the development of modern art. This narrative guidebook will offer a unique, behind-the-scenes look at how Catalonia’s landscape, culture and people influenced major 20th-century painters and writers. The Colors of Catalonia steps into this idyllic Mediterranean setting, visiting the same cafes, restaurants, hotels, and homes where the artists drank, ate and lived. The reader can witness the artistic development of now-legendary painters and writers during their travels throughout French and Spanish Catalonia.
