About this artwork

George R. Collins, prominent historian of Spanish art and architecture at Columbia University, collected an unrivalled research file on Antoni Gaudí and Catalan modernismo. The collection includes originals and copies of 19th- and 20th-century research documents; period and contemporary photographs of buildings; several hundred architectural drawings (copies of Gaudí drawings remaining in Spain) with the unpublished manuscript of Collins’s catalogue raisonné of the drawings; extensive correspondence with research colleagues in Spain; rare exhibition catalogs of Spanish art; research notes, photographs and correspondence concerning Collins’s exhibitions Unbuilt America, Visionary Drawings, and Fantastic Architecture; and corrections and addenda for the proposed revised edition of his bibliography Antoni Gaudí and the Catalan movement, 1870–1930.
