Roberto Matta (1911-2002) is considered one of the most visionary painters of the 20th century. He not only left his mark on art history, but also significantly influenced numerous artists, including Arshile Gorky, Dorothea Tanning, Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell, or brought them to art in the first place.

His biography is that of a cosmopolitan: born in Santiago, Chile, he lived and worked in South America, France, Mexico, the USA, Italy, Spain and England. In 1934, at his father's request, he joined Le Corbusier's office in Paris, but did not pursue a career in architecture; instead, he began painting in 1938 and exhibited at the legendary Exposition Internationale du Surréalisme in the same year. At the end of the 1930s, he emigrated to New York, where he soon had his first solo exhibition at the Julian Levy Gallery. In New York, Matta became a figurehead for the later New York School of Painting in particular, but unlike the representatives of Abstract Expressionism, he never abandoned representationalism for his art.

Matta himself coined the term "technique of psychological morphologies". His paintings always depict a kind of "inner landscape", which Matta called "inscape". One searches in vain for a vanishing point in Matta's painterly cosmos. Transcendence, mysticism and the automatism so important to surrealism are Matta's constant companions.
