The Lluís Domènech i Montaner Foundation is born with a will to recover, study and disseminate the personality and the oeuvre of one of the most influential and representative figures in the second half of the nineteenth century and first quarter of the twentieth century.
Despite being distinguished by an exceptional career, his biography has remained inexplicably overlooked, underestimated even, in comparison with the strong media presence of other historical and artistic figures. Aware of the values and of the importance that the recovery and recognition of such unique characters and their context entail for our present moment in time, a numerous group of researchers, academicians, professors, historians, writers and, above all, relatives and general admirers of his work have fostered the creation of a cultural entity that intends to rescue his memory from this unfair neglect, disseminate his works, ideas, writings, and his artistic and architectural oeuvre.
On an international scale, the Foundation aspires to disseminate Domènech’s oeuvre as a foremost example of modernisme, Catalan Art Nouveau, highlighting its connections and complicities with coeval cultural movements around Europe.
It also hopes to shed light on his multifaceted contributions, of the utmost contemporaneity, his undeniable progressiveness and surprising capacity for creation and innovation.
The Foundation’s website is set up as a collaborative platform to promote connections between the academic, scientific, professional and civic fields, based on the scientific rigour and intellectual clarity of the information made freely available to interested audiences. The guiding principle of the Foundation is to carry out its task purposely, responsibly, freely, independently and empathetically for the common good and in social interest.
