Photographer's Note

Casa Batllˇ, is a building restored by Antoni GaudÝ and Josep Maria Jujol, built in the year 1877 and remodelled in the years 1904ľ1906; located at 43, Passeig de GrÓcia (passeig is Catalan for promenade or avenue), part of the Illa de la Disc˛rdia in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Spain.

The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), and indeed it does have a visceral, skeletal organic quality. It was originally designed for a middle-class family and situated in a prosperous district of Barcelona.

The building looks very remarkable Ś like everything GaudÝ designed, only identifiable as Modernisme or Art Nouveau in the broadest sense. The ground floor, in particular, is rather astonishing with tracery, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work.
