Biography from Leonard Davenport Fine Arts / LSDArt:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Josep Grau-Garriga, painter and maker of mixed media and tapestry art, was born in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Spain.  He studied at the Escola de Belles Arts in Barcelona, earning a prize for etching.

He held his first exhibition of etchings in 1953, and followed this with an exhibition of murals in 1954.  He was appointed Director of the Escola Catalana de Tapís in 1959.  His exhibition of tapestries in Barcelona (1961) was so well received that during the next year, he exhibited many times in several cities.  He painted the glass windows for the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Rome in 1966.  By the late 1960s, he had solo exhibitions internationally, including consecutive years in New York City. 

His work from that decade was the subject of a major retrospective in 1971 at the Museum of Houston.  His work can be seen in the contemporary section in the Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona.
