Time Out Says

At the end of the 1960s, coinciding with an increase in his political commitment, Antoni Tàpies put more emphasis on his work with objects. It wasn't anything new for the artist – he'd already been working with them since he started with material paintings. In 1956, for the window display at the shop Gales on Passeig de Gràcia, Tàpies created the work 'Metallic door and violin'. With this piece, which paired an old, beat-up, ugly warehouse door along with a violin and which was part of the creation of five Christmas scenes organised by Alexandre Cirici, Tàpies gave value to items previously condemned to disuse.
