Organized and published in association with Institut Valencia d'Art Modern, Centre Julio Gonzalez, Valencia. 322 pp. with 119 ills. (83 col.). 32 x 29 cm. LC 92-211895 In Spanish; foreword, two essays and excerpts from interviews with the artist also in Catalan and English.
Focused on the celebrated "matter paintings" produced by avant-garde Catalan artist Antoni Tapies (b. 1923) from the mid-1950s to the late 60s, this substantial catalogue features excellent full-page reproductions of 83 works characterized by their limited tonal ranges of grays, ochres and browns and their densely textured surfaces incorporating rags, string, paper and other commonplace materials. Excerpts from interviews with Tapies accompany two lengthy critical essays that discuss in detail his links to Klee, Miro and Ernst, the evolution of his symbolic graffiti style, and his prominent position in the complex artistic debates of the 1950s.
