Description: (MATTA, ROBERTO SEBASTIÁN.) Jarry, Alfred. Ubu Roi. 8 color etchings signed and numbered "ea 18/30" by Matta, one folding cut-out plate, and numerous illustrations throughout the text. 403x251 mm; 15 7/8x9<7/8> inches (sheets), full margins. Folio, contents loose as issued in etched wrappers by Matta; publisher''s polished white cotton chemise and slipcase, chemise spine toned, slipcase lightly discolored and spotted; internally fine. numbered 18 of only 30 copies of the artist''s edition, from a total edition of 165. Paris: Atelier Dupont-Visat, 1982

Notes: In the 1930s, Matta became an active member of the French Surrealists, who all looked to Jarry for inspiration and courage. For the first published edition of the play Jarry created his own illustrations, in particular, the figure of father Ubu, with a distinctive spiral across his stomach. As a sign of Matta''s appreciation to Jarry, in this production, the distinctive spiral appears in many of his paintings.
