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.
Antoni Tàpies Foundation Building
The building of the Antoni Tàpies Foundation is a modernist building designed by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It is so curious for all who pass through the area, either on foot or even by car.
Built between 1881 and 1885, the building’s facade combines the use of bricks and iron. This building was the first of its kind to be built in the area and served as the seat until 1981 the Editorial Montaner i Simon.
