If you're near the Gaudi apartments, you're near the Fundacio Antoni Tapies. (RIP), he died at age 87 or so March 2012.

Seeing his art all in one place changed my life. Once I scraped my jaw off the floor......I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, and I'm at least attempting to paint like he did. I've had several shows borrowing his style, as best I can anyway, more of a tribute......there was no better mid century painter in my opinion. Just genius.

This building is his own museum, there is one of his sculptures on top of the building called "chair and hair", it's a bit hard to miss but it IS on a side street going away from the Gaudi apartments about a block. If you can possibly go there, GO. It's just wonderful. I'll add photos when I can. Google images Antoni Tapies paintings. They are HUGE.

i usually really enjoy modern art but Taipes work just doesn't make sense to me or appeal in any way. Check out his style first before shelling out the entrance fee.

Loved the work of Antonio Tapies. Also loved the building which houses the art. Both worth the visit! Very inspiring!

This museum is very special as it gives an insight into one of Spain's greatest Contemporary artists. But even more than that, we enjoyed the building itself and learning about its history and renovation. We had no trouble finding it and spent a few hours there. Highly recommend it to all.
