Abstract:

"This publication is a reflection on Matta from the personal standpoint of his dealer and a friend, Thomas Monahan. The works that are reproduced in this book are either currently owned by the dealer or have been sold over the years and paired with museum masterpieces. The reproductions are accompanied by two interviews; the first is an interview with Thomas Monahan, covering his start in the art world to his friendship with the artist. Through his recollections, we get a down-to-earth view of Matta at home, in his studio, walking the Paris streets; we see paintings evolve, hear stories, and get a feeling for Matta's incredible physical and mental energy. Thomas Monahan also guides us through the paintings, which he knows as well, if not better, than almost anyone. The second interview with Matta is conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist, right before the artist's death"--
