About Giorgio de Chirico

  • Giorgio de Chirico ( KIRR-ik-oh, Italian: ['d?ord?o de'ki?riko]; 10 July 1888 – 20 November 1978) was an Italian artist and writer born in Greece.
  • In the years before World War I, he founded the scuola metafisica art movement, which profoundly influenced the surrealists.
  • His most well-known works often feature Roman arcades, long shadows, mannequins, trains, and illogical perspective.
  • His imagery reflects his affinity for the philosophy of Nietzsche and for the mythology of his birthplace. After 1919, he became a critic of modern art, studied traditional painting techniques, and worked in a neoclassical or neo-Baroque style, while frequently revisiting the metaphysical themes of his earlier work.
