The modern art world lost one of its greats today with the death of Spanish painter Antoni Tapies. He was one of the most famous painters to come out of Spain since Dali and Miro, though you don’t hear about him as much here in the United States. He liked to make weird semi-surreal, quasi-abstract art using found materials. One of his most famous sculptures was a faux-blood stained mattress with the stuffing pulled out of it. Certainly, his stuff is not for everyone. But, we think he was pretty cool, so here are a few of his paintings to bring some fine art to your Tuesday afternoon.
