    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Surrealist Drawing is an exceptional pencil drawing by the artist Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurren, who signed on the lower right of the paper “Matta”.

    Matta was an important Chilean artist, protagonist of Surrealism and precursor of Abstract Expressionism. He lived in France in 1934, in America after WWII and then in Italy, where he moved in 1949, influencing with his work the contemporary Italian painters. In these years, he most likely realized the Surrealist Drawing, an abstract artwork, connected to the oneiric world and to “psychological morphologies”, typical in his painting: repetitive forms, vaguely natural, disturbing, and fascinating in their mysterious aspects.

    This is therefore an important artwork, rare, to include in your collection, by a great master of 20th-century painting.

Roberto Matta

Chile Born in: 1911 Masterpieces
Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurren, “Matta,” (1911–2002), was born in Santiago, Chile.

Roberto Matta’s first one-artist exhibition was held at the Julian Levy Gallery, New York in 1940, and since that time, nearly 400 solo exhibitions of his work have been mounted, including MoMA’s 1957 retrospective, which traveled to the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (1957) and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (1958).

Roberto Matta is considered one of the great Surrealists and is widely acclaimed for his critical, and catalytic, influence on the development of Abstract Expressionism and on his contemporaries, including Jackson Pollock, Arshile Gorky, Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell.
