Published jointly by Enciclopèdia Art and the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, the work reviews the career of one of the most important Catalan artists of the 20th century and a world reference of Informalism.
Authors: Xavier Antich (President of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies), Carles Guerra (Director of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies), Flavia Company, Manuel Guerrero, M. Dolores Jiménez-Blanco, Albert Mercadé, Xavier Montanyà, Javier Pérez Segura, John C. Welchman and the team of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies.
“With this publication, it is possible to look back, for the first time, at the work of Tàpies, which has unfolded over almost seven decades, to try to think, precisely, about his contemporaneity, which means his interpellation to a time that is already our own”. – Xavier Antich – President of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies and co-author of the book.
