Antoni Tàpies (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 Tàpies’ 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 Miró, 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 Tàpies’ philosophical preoccupations and the profound resonances of his own art across cultures.
