Tàpies: From Within
June 21st – November 3rd 2013
Curated by: Vicent Todolí
Organised by: Fundació Antoni Tàpies and Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.

Antoni Tàpies’ first artistic attempts began during a long convalescence following a serious illness, after which his increasing dedication to painting and drawing led him to abandon his university education. By the 1940s, he was already exhibiting work that distinguished him among the artistic scene of the moment. Co-founder of the magazineDau al Set in 1948, and influenced by Miró and Klee, he became increasingly interested in iconographic and magical subjects.

He gradually began to incorporate geometrical elements and colour studies leading to an interest in matter through the use of heavily textured canvases of great expressive and communicative possibilities. With these works, Tàpies achieved international recognition by the mid-1950s.
