Paris, FRANCE (October 17, 2019) - During this year's Foire internationale d'art contemporain (FIAC), in honor of the late Germana Matta, Galerie Gmurzynksa will mount Homage to Roberto Matta (1911-2002).
Paris was one of the principal residence of Chilean artist Roberto Matta in the 1930s. The exhibition will therefore include parts of the archives and sketchbooks from Matta’s Parisian home.
The core of the presentation consists of three highly important large scale works, executed between 1947 and 1958. It will be complemented by midsize works on canvas and paper as well as sculptures.
Matta’s influence can be felt both in today’s Contemporary Art as well as in the Tech-World.
The gallery is located at Booth C29 and the fair runs from October 17-20, 2019. For more information visit https://www.fiac.com
Additional works to be shown are by Yves Klein, Wifredo Lam, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, and Antonio Saura.
