Rosario de Mattos Biography

Tacuarembó, Uruguay, 1957_

Uruguayan painter, in her work we see a great influence of IMPRESSIONISM, in the treatment of light and color.

The theme of his work focuses mainly on the landscape, both natural and urban, with special attention to marine themes, where we see a great display of light and color effects.

Lately he has ventured into abstract art. The abstract and intelligent art of Rosario de Mattos reflects his extensive knowledge of color, form and light, achieving works of enormous subtlety.

• In 2008 he received intrenational recognition: Honorary Title "Cultural Merit Carlos Gomes" in the degree of Comendadora by the Sbace (Brazilian Society of Arts Culture and Education Carlos Gomes) Campinas / San Pablo.
