Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies dies at 88

AtAntoni Tàpies, the famed Catalan abstract painter and sculptor, died on Monday. The artist had a close association with the late Buffalo-born gallerist Martha Jackson, and nine of his works -- including the pictured ink and oil on newspaper piece, "A Martha Jackson, heureux 1969!" -- are in the collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Many of those works were gifted to the gallery by Jackson or by her son, David Anderson.

 

Obituaries of the accomplished artist have run in The New York Times, The Guardian of London and elsewhere.
