Barcelona, 1923 – 2012
Antoni Tàpies was a key artist in the development of modern art in Catalonia and Spain, and one of the most important representatives of Informalism at the international level. A lover of literature and music, he was interested in Eastern art and philosophy. With the aim of promoting the study of modern and contemporary art, in 1984 he created the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, which opened its doors in Barcelona in 1990.
Widely recognized and studied, his work has been the object of numerous individual and collective exhibitions, and is present today in the collections of the world’s most prestigious museums.
