    Casa Vicens, the first masterpiece of Antoni Gaudí: Manifesto of his work

    The permanent collection, which occupies the whole second floor, is the cornerstone of the Casa Vicens Gaudí museum and will act as a foundation for the rest of the exhibitions and installations scheduled.

    The permanent collection is based on the social and cultural context in Barcelona when Casa Vicens was being designed (1883-1885), looking more closely at the beginning of the career of a young Antoni Gaudí through his influences, reflections, first projects, works and collaborations, to then focus on the original project and construction of Casa Vicens and how it changed over the years, above all explaining how the building techniques and art, structures and ornamentation all come together to form a single whole. It is in this final aspect that Casa Vicens is conceived as a whole art work.

    This collection begins with an audiovisual piece and continues with original pieces from the house and three interactive tables with historical documents, plans, models and the more unique and representative building and decorative materials from the House.

    Gaudí had actually received the commission from Manuel Vicens i Montaner, a brick and tile factory owner, some years earlier; Vicens had inherited the land, which at the time stood in the independent village of Gràcia, and wanted to build a summer house there.

The beginnings of his singular style and inventiveness are clearly on show.
