Casa Amatller: Modernist Stained Glass Ceiling
© All Rights Reserved
This is the stained glass ceiling of Casa Amatller, a modernist house at Passeig de Gracia 41 next to Casa Batlló and Casa Lleó Morera , three buildings so different in style that their block got to be called Illa de la Discòrdia (Block of Discord). Built in just two years (1898-1900) by architect Puig i Cadafalch, Casa Ametller is inspired in Catalan and Central European Gothic but it is predominantly Modernist. Remember that Josep Puig i Cadafalch was the same architect that designed Casa de les Punxes, Casa Macaya, Casa Serra among many others. This picture was taken from the hall at the main entrance (visits are not allowed in the house). If you ignore my awful framing you can admire the elaborate stained glass work.
PS: As you can see I have been testing a bigger size for my pictures which doesn´t compromise lower resolution screens. I think Flickr works just fine. The only problem is that when you click on the image to resize it you get the same picture size on Flickr. No problem, you click on top where it says All Sizes and voilà a nice looking 1280x922.
