Antoni Gaudí Metal Work Photos

Antoni Gaudí, renowned architect of Barcelona, commissioned wrought and cast iron & other metal pieces for his buildings and for other sculptures and street furniture. Because Gaudi worked with several tradesmen and craftsmen, it is difficult to say how much of each design is due to him, but it is fair to say he inspired the works. These original images by Jim Steinhart are arranged chronologically to help understand the evolution of Gaudi's thinking.
