Roberto Matta paintings


Column Appraisal and valuation, Paintings and drawings

Roberto Matta-Echaurren (1911-2002) said Matta is one of the leading painters of the surrealist movement. His production was exceptional in the link he established between his paintings, his personal history and history.

 

 

 

 

 

 

His debut 

 

Matta studied architecture at Santiago. In 1933, he worked in the studio of Le Corbusier in Marseille. He continues his European tour throughout Spain, Scandinavia and England, where he met the major figures of the art of the first half of the 20 th century as Henry Moore and Rene Magritte.

Matta a Surrealist painter 

 

Matta performs a series of paintings in which he experimented with a new technique with a cloth; he puts colour on the canvas, which, as spread out, which decide on the further course of the brush. It is similar to automatic writing process in this series entitled "psychological morphologies". His approach is quite characteristic of the artistic researches of the Surrealist movement.

 

In New York during the war, he received in his workshop the future big names of the future Post War movement, in particular Jackson Pollock.

1945, turning 

 

From this year, the work of Matta is strongly influenced by his political commitment. His paintings reflect the political conflicts; social and cultural rights shaking the world, tensions are visible and palpable in his paintings. He painted landscapes and spaces chaotic, explosive and swirling. It was during this time that he produced monumental works.

 

Artistic genius, Matta, like Picasso, is one of the few artists to have painted to denounce the horrors of history and the world in which he lived. Present in many museums, his works are sought after. His oil on canvas fetch around £50,000 and £80,000.
