Roberto Matta

Roberto Matta (1911 - 2002), whose real name was Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurre, was originally from Chile.
After unsuccessfully studying architecture, he worked with Le Corbusier before travelling around Europe, where he became friends with Rafael Alberti, Federico Garcia Lorca, Alvar Aalto, Henry Moore, Roland Penrose and René Magritte.

His meeting with André Breton turned him into a Surrealist, contributing to the magazine Minotaur and met Yves Tanguy, who was to have a major influence on his work.
