RIP: Antoni Tapies...

Antoni Tapies: Esperit Català II Graphic Print. Etching and Embossing. Limited Edition (75). Signed and Numbered. Year: 1974

Antoni Tàpies, a largely self-taught Spanish abstract painter whose seductive, tactile surfaces, often scratched with mysterious graffiti-like marks, made use of unconventional materials like marble dust, ground chalk, sand and earth, died on Monday in Barcelona. He was 88.
