Roberto Matta (1911-2002) Matta was born in 1911 in Santiago de Chile. He studied architecture in Chile and later moved to Paris where he worked for Le Corbusier. He travelled a lot across Europa and met amongst others Federico García Lorca, Salvador Dalí and André Breton. Breton declared him to be a Surrealist and Matta really felt a connection to this group of artist. But first, he only wrote about architecture in a surrealistic magazine. He started painting himself in 1938 and immediately participated in the great Surrealism Exhibition in Paris. To avoid the war, Matta moved to New York, where he was very quickly accepted as an artist. He returned to Europe in 1948 and moved to Rome. Matta’’’’s art has always been politically influenced and many of his drawings show that. (cru) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
