The Antoni Tàpies Foundation in Barcelona is a curious building in the Arago 255 Street, in the Eixample quarter. This is a museum and cultural centre dedicated to the famous artist Antoni Tàpies ( 1923-2012 ) .
It was created in 1984 by the same Antoni Tàpies . His idea was to create a centre for the study and promotion of contemporary art. However, Antoni Tàpies Foundation did not open to the public until 1990.
Antoni Tàpies, one of the leading artists of the twentieth century, always linked to the city of Barcelona, was a painter, sculptor and theorist of Catalan art. The Antoni Tàpies Foundation includes more than 300 works by him and his wife, Teresa Tàpies.
Of the three hundred works displayed on various topics, social issues are the most prominent on the exhibits in the Antoni Tàpies Foundation. Barcelona artist pictures used to demonstrate the oppression, affliction and the characteristic formalism of the author and the time.
In addition of works of Tàpies, the Museum has numerous temporary exhibitions covering all artistic genres.
