Tàpies, Rag and String
Antoni Tàpies has worked extensively on different materials that could be integrated into his works.

The work exhibited in the museum Peggy Guggenheim, made in 1968, is no exception.

In addition to a pigment base, Tàpies used sand, rags, and a string to make his painting.

These low materials can be found rejected anywhere on the ground; these things that have become useless are assembled here into a work that could almost be called robust.

The sand roughness mixed with the rag and a piece of rope across the middle of this almost cement's Wall indeed gives extraordinary relief to these materials' simplicity.

This painting is quite representative of Antoni Tàpies's works, in which he mixes painting with various low materials.

During his artistic research, he also incorporated found objects into his paintings.

Like here, sand, rag and string.
