The first international monograph dedicated to the work of the Chilean painter,
a major figure in the twentieth-century Surrealist movement.
Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurren (1911-2002) was an international figure whose
worldview represented a synthesis of European, American, and Latin American cultures.
As a member of the Surrealist movement and an early mentor to several Abstract Expressionists,
Matta broke with both groups to pursue a highly personal artistic vision. His mature work
blended abstraction, figuration, and multi-dimensional spaces into complex, cosmic landscapes.
This monograph traces the life and the work of the artist from the beginning to his most
celebrated works; it also includes the interview that, just before his death last year at the age of 91,
Roberto Matta gave Tate’s contributing editor Hans Ulrich Obrist.
