  • Artist - Antoni Tàpies - Biography
    Antoni Tàpies was a spanish painter, lithographer and etcher. He studied law at Barcelona University, then gave this up to devote himself to painting. He studied at a drawing school in Barcelona, the Valls Academy; otherwise self-taught. In 1945-7 he made works with thick impasto, collages, objects and graffiti. He took part with young painters and writers in the creation of the group Dau al Set.
    He painted delicate romantic Surrealist pictures influenced by Miró and Klee. His first exhibition was at the Galerias Laietanes. He then moved to Paris in 1950-1 on a French government scholarship. He turned to abstract art in 1952 and began soon afterwards to use thick, highly textured impasto incorporating such materials as clay and marble dust, together with incised and scribbled lines.
