Antoni Tapies passed away aged 88 on Monday

Considered as one of the grand exponents of informality worldwide, he was born in Barcelona in 1923.

His parents were bourgeois, educated and Catalan politicians, and had themselves been involved in the traditions of books and publishing. This gave Antoni an early love for books and reading.

Self taught, Tapies gained international fame for his abstract paintings and compositions, which included his renowned work The Sock, a large model of a sock with a hole in the heel.

He won many awards and was associated early on in his career with other major names in 20th-century art, including fellow Catalan Joan Miro.

He also had a prominent art foundation named after him in the city.
