Description
 

Robert Hughes has been a regular visitor to Barcelona since the 1960s and published a book about the city in 1992 that was quickly hailed as a classic. InBarcelona the Great Enchantress,Hughes crafts a more personal tale of his nearly forty-year love affair with the Spanish metropolis, one of the most vibrant and fascinating cities in Europe. Beginning with a vivid description of his wedding in the splendid medieval ceremonial chamber in Barcelonas city hall, Hughes launches into a lively account of the history, art, and architecture of the storied city. He tells of architectural treasures abounding in 14th-century Barcelona, establishing it as one of Europes great Gothic cities, while Madrid was hardly more than a cluster of huts. The city spawned such great artists as Antoni Gaudi, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Salvador Dali, and Pablo Casals. Hughess deep knowledge of the city is evidentbut its his personal reflections of what Barcelona, its people, and its storied history and culture have meant to him over the decades that setsBarcelona the Great Enchantressapart from all others books.
