Mathieu Matégot

Mathieu Mategot (1910 – 2001) is a designer and artist of Hungarian origin. After the School of Fine Arts in Budapest, in 1933, he created furniture. Passionate about painting since his early youth, he turned in the late 30s, to the tapestry. He ends his career as a designer in the early 60s and devoted himself to tapestry once and for all.

It is this mode of expression that fully satisfies the creative imagination of the designer. He accepts the principles formulated by Lurgat who was his master, and takes a very different path. His tapestries obviously belong to abstract art but have nothing dry or intellectual. The lines, daring balances, unexpected color, a whole set of lights and shadows give to the tapestries dramatic intensity, and to mirages, the consistency of wool.

Mathieu Mategot(1910 - 2001)是匈牙利裔的設計師和藝術家。 1933年,在布達佩斯的美術學院之後,他創造了家具。自從他年輕的時候就開始熱愛繪畫,他在30年代後期轉向掛毯。他在60年代初結束了他作為設計師的職業生涯,並一勞永逸地致力於掛毯。 正是這種表達方式完全滿足了設計師的創造性想像。他接受了作為他的主人的Lurgat制定的原則,並採取了一條完全不同的道路。他的掛毯顯然屬於抽象藝術,但沒有任何干燥或知識分子。線條,大膽的平衡,意想不到的顏色,一整套燈光和陰影賦予掛毯戲劇性的強度,以及海市蜃樓,羊毛的一致性。
