“The real magic at Four Seasons happens behind the scenes. It is the unscripted care and service, delivered by our people. That creates lasting memories and exceptional experiences for our guests,” says Christian Clerc, President, Worldwide Hotel Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “It is no small task to capture the spirit of our iconic brand through art and Ignasi has done so beautifully. Through this book, I hope people are transported to the beautiful places of Four Seasons. We are inspired by these stories to create and craft their own memorable moments.”

“Ignasi’s unique approach to digital art combines traditional art forms with modern technology to express the timelessness of personal connections and the power of the Four Seasons story,” notes Clerc.  “We are honoured to work with him and privileged to be the subject of Assouline’s celebration of luxury, culture, and lifestyle.

“It is the perfection that’s just there that you take for granted,” says Monreal about his seven-week odyssey to eight Four Seasons properties around the world. “True luxury is in the things you don’t notice or see. Of course, I experienced the stunning Four Seasons properties, but it was the warmth of the welcoming people, compounded by the lifetime of memories they create for their guests, that inspired the artworks found in this book – artworks that vividly portray the power of human connection, the potent significance of each personal story.”
