Gaudi's amazing cathedral Sagrada Familia in the dawn's light ... Barcelona is really a magical city...
I traveled to Barcelona and I was impressed by Sagrada Familia. It's architectural style has been called ''warped Gothic''. The rippling contours of the stone facade make it look as though Sagrada Familia is melting in the sun,while the towers are topped with brightly-colored mosaic. Gaudi believed that color is life. Perhaps that's why I personally admire so much his amazing creations.
The story of this painting is quite unusual. I started this work back in 2011, but it stayed unfinished in the studio till few months ago when I finally finished it. :)
'' Describing Sagrada Familia, art critic Rainer Zerbst said >.
The Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family, commonly known as Sagrada Familia, is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi ( 1852 - 1926 ). Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thought construction of Sagrada Familia had commenced in 1882, Gaudi became involved in 1883, taking over the project and transforming it with his architectural and engineering style - combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms.
Gaudi devoted his last years to the project, and at the time of his death, in 1926, less than a quarter of the project was complete. Sagrada Familia's construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project's greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completation date of 2026 - the centennial of Gaudi's death. '' ( Wiki )
