Photographer's Note

The FOUR COLUMNS are a free-standing columns with Ionic capitals, work of the architect Puig i Cadafalch, which got up in 1919 in the place that today occupies the Magic Fountain of Montjuic in Barcelona. They were demolished in 1928 by the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, being reconstructed in 2010 to few meters from its original location.

I you present this post in B/W as symbol of the moment in which they were constructed.

In the WS the version in color.


HISTORY
The Four Columns symbolize the four bars of the Catalan flag and were destined to become one of the symbols of Catalan nationalism. They must be crowned by representative figures of four victories, which were not realized. The columns were knocked down in 1928 during the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera. During this period there were eliminated of systematic form all the public symbols of the catalanism in order that they did not have the echo that could give them the International Exhibition of 1929 that had to be celebrated in Montjuïc.

HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE

Las CUATRO COLUMNAS son unas columnas exentas, con capiteles jónicos, obra del arquitecto Puig i Cadafalch, que se levantaron en 1919 en el lugar que hoy en día ocupa la Font màgica de Montjuïc en la ciudad de Barcelona. Fueron derribadas en 1928 por la dictadura de Primo de Rivera, siendo reconstruidas en 2010 a pocos metros de su ubicación original.

Os presento este post en B/N como símbolo del momento en que se construyeron.

HISTORIA
Las Cuatro Columnas simbolizan las cuatro barras de la senyera catalana y estaban destinadas a convertirse en uno de los símbolos del catalanismo. Debían estar coronadas por figuras representativas de cuatro victorias, que no se realizaron. Las columnas fueron derribadas en 1928 durante la dictadura de Primo de Rivera. Durante este periodo se eliminaron de forma sistemática todos los símbolos públicos del catalanismo para que no tuvieran el eco que les podía dar la Exposición Internacional de 1929 que tenía que celebrarse en Montjuïc.

FELIZ SOLSTICIO DE VERANO
