Antoni Tàpies, 1923 - 2012

Antoni Tàpies, Metal Shutter and Violin, 1956
Antoni Tàpies died on 6 February, 2012. The Spanish artist's abstractions are notable for the use of readymade objects, sombre, rich colours, and textured materials - marble dust and sand mixed with pigment and varnish. He was, arguably, one of the greatest of European abstractionists.
