Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Spanish painter, Antonio Tapies, studied law from 1943-1946 at the University of Barcelona before taking up painting. He was largely self-taught and his early works had surrealist tendencies, resembling the styles of both Joan Miro and Paul Klee.

During the mid 1950's, Tàpies' work shifted toward abstraction and he started implementing mixed media into his work. It was with these pieces that he gained notoriety. Tàpies started adding clay and marble dust into his paints and mov (showing 500 of 15709 characters).
