Antoni Tàpies is said to be one of the best master artist of the 20th Century and he is perhaps the best-known Spanish artist to emerge in the period since the Second World War. The foundation was created in 1984 by Antoni Tàpies to promote the study and knowledge of modern and contemporary art and it owns one of the most complete collections of Tàpies? work. The building is a 19th Century modernist construction of Domènech i Montaner. It is crowned for the artist's sculpture "Cloud and chair", representing Tàpies' symbolic universe.

El edificio es una construcción modernista de finales del siglo XIX de Domènech i Montaner.
