Antoni Tàpies. Collection, # 6
Local artist, Antoni Tàpies (1923-2012), was one of the most famous European artists of his generation. He started out as a surrealist but soon experimented in other fields, including incorporating non-artistic materials into his paintings. The Fundació Antoni Tàpies presents a new selection of works by Tàpies, which takes viewers on a journey through the creative phases of the renowned Catalan artist. Exhibiting works from the 1940s onwards, this collection illustrates the chronological development of the typologies, techniques and materials used by Tàpies, as well as his interest in physical matter, his political commitment and the relationship between his work and other artistic disciplines.
