Antoni Gaudí Objects from Nature Photos

Antoni Gaudí, renowned architect of Barcelona, is noted for many objects designed from nature, especially trees, leaves and various reptiles. 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.
