FIRST REPRINT of recorded conversations in Paris thirty years ago by Eduardo Carrasco with the Roberto Matta (b. Santiago de Chile, 1911). The conversations were recorded over a period of four months between 1981 and 1982, and its location was the apartment of Matta in the Boulevard Saint Germain in the heart of the Latin Quarter, historic cultural center of Paris. The subjects range from his childhood and adolescence in Chile, issues in Chilean society of the '20s, the surrealist movement and the situation in Europe between the wars. They give testimony on important cultural figures as Gabriela Mistral, Federico García Lorca, André Breton and Pablo Neruda. Through various topics such as love, travel, writing and practice of art itself, the book seeks to determine the artist's ideas about the origin of art and the evolution of his work through its various stages.
