This is the third in a series of six volumes on the important contemporary Spanish artist Antoni Tapies. The series presents his entire oeuvre, including paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures. The period covered by this third volume presents work in which social and political elements appear to have been accentuated. During the second half of the 1960s and the first half of the 1970s, Tapies' art acquired a more specifically political character of protest. Many of his works produced in the course of these years constitute criticism of autocratic and bureaucratic power. The following are some of Tapies' major one-man exhibitions held during the period: Galerie Maeght, Paris, 1969; Gallery Moos, Toronto, 1969; Martha Jackson Gallery, New York, 1970; Galleria Il Collezionista, Rome, 1971; Galerie Maeght, Zurich, 1971; Galerie Maeght, Paris, 1972; Martha Jackson Gallery, New York, 1973; Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, 1973; Louisiana Museum, Humlebaek, 1973; National Galerie, Berlin, 1974; Gallery Moos, Toronto, 1974; Martha Jackson Gallery, New York, 1975; Galerie Beyeler, Basel, 1975.
