Joan Crexells

Joan Crexells (1896-1926) was one of the most significant representatives of the so-called second generation of the Noucentist movement. Cosmopolitan and nationalist at the same time, he was endowed with a solid and broad education. This background enabled him to reflect on a wide variety of subjects from various fields of knowledge.
