Description

Matta used two plates to create this stunning, geometric study. Between 1959 and 61 Matta created a portfolio of 16 etchings, with text, he titled "Como Detta Dentro vo Significado."

The edition was done in various proofs, this impression being from the published edition of 100. It was co-published by Editions Meyer, Lausanne and Galerie Le Point Cardinal.

Chilean born Matta studied at the Atelier 17 in New York after he was exiled from Paris during the acceleration of World War II. He was a formal member of the Surrealists, expelled and then re-invited.

These works, done early in Matta's primtmaking career, exploit many of the Surrealist ideas that were developed at Atelier 17 in the 1930s through the 1960s.
