“Modernisme” is what the French referred to as New Style and the British as Art Nouveau. A totally new and revolutionary art concept and trend that swept across Europe and influenced and re-shaped the Arts, Literature and Architecture like no other movement had managed to do before. Catalan artists, Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol gave new meaning to the art of painting, and architect Antoni Gaudí and Lluis Domenech I Montaner redefined modern architecture. Suddenly Barcelona lived its own Renaissance. It was a time of prosperity all over Europe and signs of this newly acquired wealth is what you see today in the fabulously designed houses of that period.
