The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya presents an exhibition highlighting the artistic legacy of Antoni Tàpies (1923-2012), the painter, sculptor and art theorist who was the best known post-war Catalan artist.
Thanks to the collaboration of the Tàpies Foundation, the exhibition delves into his workshop to unearth works that have rarely been displayed and, in some cases, never published.
In 1948 Tàpies became a co-founder of Dau al Set, Spain's first post-war art movement which was connected to the Surrealist and Dadaist movements. Within a decade his international reputation was firmly established.
In 1984 he created the Tàpies Foundation, dedicated to the study of modern art. Six years later the foundation opened a museum and library in Barcelona and it holds some 2,000 examples of the artist's work.
Mon-Sat 10.00-19.00. Sun 10.00-14.30.
