Monograph featuring the drawings, works on paper, works on wood, and collages made from 1946-1964 by Antoni Tapies, 1st Marquess of Tapies (1923-2012), a noted Catalan artist of the postwar era. Tapies was an eclectic artist who was influenced by his contemporaries, including Paul Klee and Joan Miro, and art movements of the time such as Surrealism, Dadaism, Abstract Expressionism, and Pop Art. However, Tapies was by no means derivative and synthesized his influences into a unique vision that was his own. Tapies became well-known as a mixed-media artist who worked with painting, sculpture, and printmaking while incorporating unconventional materials such as string, cloth, scrap paper, and marble dust. Notably, he co-founded Dau al Set, the first postwar art movement in Spain which had close ties to Surrealism and Dadaism. The monograph begins with an essay interspersed with illustrations and concludes with plates accompanied by brief captions. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
