Roberto Antonio Sebastián Matta Echaurren
1911 Santiago de Chile – 2002 Civitavecchia

Roberto Matta was a Chilean architect, sculptor and painter.

Matta is one of the most visionary painters of the 20th century whose contribution to art history is fully established, yet within his oeuvre are still discoveries to be made. His work is as relevant today as when the influential MoMA curator and Director of the Painting and Sculpture Department, William Rubin, wrote in 1985: “I have, myself, never stopped looking at Matta's work. For me, he was and remains one of the relatively few truly inventive and independent painters of the 20th century - indeed, one of a small number whose art has changed my life.”

After originally working as an architect, not only with Le Corbusier, but also with Alvar Aalto and Walter Gropius during his youth in Europe, Matta brought a new concept of space to Surrealist painting, blending it with Abstract Expressionism and blowing the conceptual and constructive principles of modern architecture apart, opening it up to cosmic explosions and subjective implosions. He eventually integrated into his masterpieces socio-political commentaries, combined with his unique irony.
