Abstract Although Barcelona is famous for exuberant modernista buildings, the Gothic Quarter, and big names like Picasso, Janina and Alastair are determined to discover some less well-known cultural treats. Getting away from the crowds on the Ramblas, they seek out the designs of an engineer who arguably put more of a stamp on the city than its star architect, Antoni Gaudí; the Romanesque frescoes that inspired a young Miró, and a surprising collection of vintage fans. Through the Catalan capital’s art and artists, they show how Barcelona developed its distinctive cultural identity, and how the long-running fight for independence has shaped the exceptional artistic life of the city.
