Charles Garnier: Journey To Spain


In May 1868, architect Charles Garnier embarked on a month-long journey through Spain, accompanied by his wife, Louise, and two friends, architect Ambroise Baudry and painter Gustave Boulanger. They traversed the country from San Sebastien to Cádiz, then visited Granada, Valencia, Figueras and Perpignan before finally returning to Paris. Throughout the journey, Garnier and Boulanger absorbed all they saw. Their previously unpublished notebook, in which prosaic itinerary notes (expenses, accommodation and transport) are mixed with perceptive observations, is presented here in a double-volume set that reproduces the original along with a full translation and scholarly texts.
