Spanish architect and designer Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) was an important and influential figure in the history of modern Spanish art. The use of colour, wide-ranging materials and introduction of organic forms into his constructions were an innovation in the realm of architecture. In his journal Gaudí freely expressed his own feelings on art: "The colours used in architecture have to be intense, logical and fertile." His architectural works, both completed and incomplete, as well as his furniture designs, illustrate the importance of this philosophy. The Sagrada Familia (1882-1926) was a monum.
