When I first set up this page in the late '90s there were relatively few resources on this artist.
Fortunately that is not the case now.
The best resource
on Antonio López García is still the (out-of-print) 1990 Rizzoli
Until recently there was nothing available that came close, but then...
The 2011 exhibition put together by the Thyseen-Bornemisza museum in Madrid has an excellent catalogue.
Compared with the three recent listings above the catalogue published by The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is on the slight side, but it is rather affordable.
An excellent article on Antonio López García can be found in the October, 1993 issue of Art in America.
There is a good introductory
article by Jason Edward Kaufman on-line:
