Antoni Tapies: Lo Sguardo del'Artista. Antoni Tˆpies (1923-2012) was a lifelong collector of both contemporary and ancient art, and, as the symbolism that recurs throughout his paintings, drawings and sculptures attests, he constantly sought links between cultures, religions and epochs. This volume, organized by Tˆpies' family a year after his death, juxtaposes a selection of artworks from across the breadth of his career with paintings and prints from his collection, by artists such as Joan Mir—, Paul Klee, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Kazuo Shiraga, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Louise Bourgeois and Jannis Kounellis, and with ancient Cycladic, Indian, Asian and African sculptures, textiles, calligraphy and paintings. These juxtapositions highlight the continuity of Tˆpies' philosophical preoccupations and the profound resonances of his own art across cultures.
