Matta / Duchamp. Influence on each other

Galerie Gmurzynska holds an exhibition of works by two giants of the art of the 20th century, Marcel Duchamp and Roberto Matt. The exhibition aims to show how artists influenced and inspired each other during and after World War II, when they both migrated to New York.

Duchamp wrote admiringly about Matte in 1944: "As a young man, Matta is the deepest artist of his generation."

William Rubin, from 1968 to 1988, director of painting and sculpture at MoMA, said in 1985: “Matt became the only artist after Duchamp who explored completely new possibilities in the illusionist space.”
