Fodor's Review

This former publishing house—and the city's first building to incorporate iron supports, built in 1880—has been handsomely converted to hold the work of preeminent contemporary Catalan painter Antoni Tàpies, as well as temporary exhibits. Tàpies, who died in 2012, was an abstract painter, although influenced by surrealism, which may account for the sculpture atop the structure, a tangle of metal titled Núvol i cadira (Cloud and Chair). The modern, airy, split-level gallery also has a bookstore that's strong on Tàpies, Asian art, and Barcelona art and architecture.
