Antoni Cellers i el seu entorn : notes sobre arquitectura religiosa vuitcentista

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The aim of this article is to present some examples of religious architecture of the fi rst half of the 19th century in Catalonia and his linking with the neoclassical aesthetics, having as a central axis the fi gure of the architect born in Lleida Antoni Cellers Azcona, academician pensioned in Rome and fi rst director of the School of Architecture in Barcelona. His most relevant religious building is the church of the Escolapis in Sabadell, although he carried out other projects in Barcelona and Lleida. The study that we present intends to make visible the other examples of the religious architecture produced to our country by other master builders and academic architects, like Francesc Renart i Arús, Francesc Vila or Josep Mestres, showing than the neoclassicism, although adopted in a late way in Catalonia, is manifested under neopalladian infl uences during half a century.
