  • This is just not worth the time or effort. Despite being included on Articket I really can not recommend this museum. Please check out Tapies work before making a visit because it is not that accessib...  more »
  • Tapies has always puzzled me, but, attributing this attitude to the knowledge of too few of his works, I hoped with the visit of his foundation to remedy this gap of mine. Disappointment: the museum is virtually empty, perhaps twenty works are on display and all of a very limited period of its decades of production. I would have most deprecated my waste of time and money if it were not that the building is interesting: Barcelona's first modernist building makes use of slender cast-iron and steel structures, a construction technique not widespread at the time in Italy.

  • Turn west at the intersection right next to Gaudí's Casa Batlló on Passeig de Gràcia, and you'll see a red brick building with a wire wrapped around the roof. This is the Antoni Tapies Museum.

  • This is the emptiest art museum I've been to. There are less than 50 pieces on all 3 floors. Art is subjective but I thought they were rather uninspiring too. I wouldn't have come if I didn't have the ArticketBCN which supposedly features the best 6 art museums in the city. Clearly not true . . . Protest to replace this with European Museum of Modern Art for the Articket. Latter is definitely superior and more appealing.
  • It's a nice exhibition if you are familiar with the artist and you like his work. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.
  • I wouldn't recommend unless you know this artist's work already. The centre mainly consists of a handful of his works, very spread out. Even if you really like his art, €8 is asking a lot. His art is not my cup of tea, and not a style which will appeal to most people. Reception was the usual Barcelona welcome (i.e. complete lack of).
  • This museum has an amazing exhibition from the artist Antoni Tàpies which exhibits his dark, simple but incredibly meaningful works.
  • The Fundació Antoni Tàpies is a cultural center and museum, located in Carrer d'Aragó, in Barcelona, Catalonia. It is dedicated mainly to the life and works of the painter Antoni Tàpies. The Fundació was created in 1984 by the artist Antoni Tàpies to promote the study and knowledge of modern and contemporary art. It combines the organisation of temporary exhibitions, symposia, lectures and film seasons with a range of publications to go with the activities and periodic shows of Tàpies' work. The Fundació owns one of the most complete collections of Tàpies' work, mostly made up of donations by Antoni and Teresa Tàpies.
