Today ,Google Doodle remember us the anniversary of the celebrated architect, Antoni Gaudí. I love whole his production , every building, every piece of ceramic that decorates his works, but if I have to declare my passion by him, that´s my favourite!!!

In 1883 Güell  asked to Gaudí to transform Guell Cottage (finca Guell), mainly the garden and the construction of two entrance pavilions: a gatekeeper's house on one side of the entrance and stables on the other side. 
The most spectacular element of Finca Güell is the wrought-iron gate that links the two pavilions. The upper part of the gate is shaped like a dragon with bat wings. Gaudí created the dragon by using standard industrial products which he bent and welded together.

The gate is hinged on a tall pillar. The pillar symbolizes the tree of the golden apples.
Both the tree and the dragon are references to the labours of Hercules, the mythical founder of Barcelona.

Sometimes, we can find absolute masterpieces where the real and  artwork seem the same .
When Photography´s birth was attributed to John Herschel in 1839, Arts, mainly Drawing and Painting changed forever and the figurative representation of people, landscapes or daily objects turn into spots, colours, and lines very expresive but not related to "real thing". It was the arrival of movements called Expressionism, Cubism, Abstract Art etc. 
But in the current time of Art phenomena, there is place too  for Realistic and Hyperrealistic drawings.
Just I wish to show you a few examples:
