Antoni Tápies. Años 60 y 70 Antoni Tàpies 19.01/31.03 2012

Casting a backwards gaze over the career of Antoni Tàpies (Barcelona, 1923), one readily detects a sense of unity running through his whole body of work, right up until the present moment. In the 1940s and 50s, Tàpies introduced the subjects, themes and tropes he was to explore throughout the remainder of his career.

Having said that, and as he himself maintains, it was in the late 1950s when he started to find his stride as a mature artist. As he mined the possibilities of this adopted vernacular, Tàpies’ signature style gelled in the 1960s and 70s, the two key decades under the spotlight in the exhibition at Galería Elvira González.
