Galerie XII Paris
Interior is the first major retrospective of Taulé's body of work. Curated by Juan Manuel Bonet in three exhibition spaces: Paris Cervantes Institute, Galerie XII Paris and Galerie BOA.
Antoni Taulé is a painter born on August 25, 1945 in Sabadell, Catalonia. Architect by training, performer and street artist during the Sixties, his art has been labelled as a representative of the “new figurative” movement. He paints classical empty buildings and interiors: ballrooms, office receptions, halls of the Louvre museum, chambers of the Prado, the Palace of Versailles, monumental spaces that fuse reality and fiction under a fleeting atmosphere of light. His unique creative universe mixes scientific and mathematical concepts and a passion for art from the past, Italian, Dutch and Spanish old masters, especially Diego Velázquez and Francisco Goya. It has inspired numbers of writers and critics, like Jean-Christophe Bailly or Julio Cortázar who were fascinated by Taulé’s rooms and tables.
