Jan Matulka Art

American, 1890-1972

Matulka studied at the National Academy of Design before traveling to the American Southwest, where he grew inspired by Native-American and Hispanic cultures. Matulka used this inspiration upon returning home to create representational yet distorted artworks. Matulka fluidly oscillates between abstraction and figural painting. He has had many solo exhibitions across NYC and has had his work displayed in notable locations such as The Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
