Roberto Matta

 

Roberto Matta, in full Roberto Antonio Sebastian Matta Echaurren, (born November 11, 1911, Santiago, Chile—died November 23, 2002, Civitavecchia, Italy), Chilean-born painter of mysterious fantastic environments who lived his adult life outside his homeland and became identified with the international Surrealist movement.

Matta completed an architecture degree at the Catholic University in Santiago (1931) and moved

to Paris in 1933 to work for the influential architect and city planner Le Corbusier. While working in the architect’s studio, Matta became increasingly interested in painting. Further, his friendships with the avant-garde in various centres of Europe—Gertrude Stein, Marcel Duchamp, Walter

Gropius, Salvador Dalí, Federico Garcia Lorca, André Breton, and others—stimulated his interest in the Surrealist movement, and by 1936 he had abandoned architecture as a career.
