Antoni Tàpies Foundation
The artist himself, Antoni Tàpies created this center in 1984 as a place to study contemporary art. Today its library has become one of the most important of its kind in the world. It exhibits a large collection of his drawings, paintings, sculptures and engravings, and organizes regular temporary exhibitions as well. The building that dates back to 1880 is the work of modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It was the headquarters of the prestigious publishing house, Editorial Montaner i Simón until the 1970s. Look up above the entrance of this museum and cultural center to see one of Tàpies's avant-garde sculptures.
