Hi Melissa,

Your note led me through  seaches for Tamara de Lempicka, and  A Life of Deco and Decadence. Both were fascinating trips through the net! Thank you so much!

While i was at it, i came across this site that had some of her work. I don’t speak Spanish but it’s my new fave… it doesn’t even matter what they’re talking about!

    Thanks for your note about my blog Barcelonetes. It is not in spanish, but in catalan (I’m affraid that doesn’t improve the matter…).

    Hi Eulàlia,
    Forgive my mistake! Can you tell me about Catalan and what your website is all about? Obviously it spoke to me in its own language!

    Hi Claudia,

    I’m sure Eulalia has gotten back to you already on this, but Catalan is a beautiful language spoken by many in the Andorra and Catalonia regions, in Spain and France respectively. Catalan is a separate ethnic heritage from Spanish, and many of Spain’s great artists–Picasso and Gaudi being just two of them–are actually Catalan, not Spanish. Franco tried to drive the Catalan out of Spain in the Spanish Civil War in the early 1930s, and the resulting violence and massacring of the Catalan and their culture was the source for Picasso’s Guernica. It’s an amazing story, and they are amazing people.
