Gaudi museum in Park Guell Barcelona


Antoni Gaudi's house in Park Guell is now the home of the Gaudi museum. Gaudi did not design this house. It was built as a model home to showcase the original property project of 60 houses that later became Park Guell, when no houses were sold. When no-one was interested in buying houses at Park Guell, the owner of the project Eusepi Guell that Anton Gaudi buy the house and move in with his father and niece. Gaudi's father died almost immediately after moving in, and his niece 6 years later,  but Gaudi lived here from 1906 until 1925 when he moved into his studio at the Sagrada Famila in the final year of his life. The Gaudi museum has a collection of furniture designed by Gaudi including his work desk and his bedroom which remains largely as it was, when he lived here.

Antoni Gaudi's death mask was made by Joan Matamala, who was Gaudi's assistent.  He extended the casting of the death mask to the whole head to be able to make a sculpture of Gaudi's face at the time of his death. When Joan Matamala remove the cast from the left part of the head, Gaudí’s right eyelid stuck to the plaster a bit, despite the oil that had been applied to avoid this happening. When the mask was removed, Gaudi's eyelid opened and his blue pupil appeared. Those present said that it was as if he was sending his friends one last wink from beyond the grave.
