The work of Giorgio de Chirico (Volos, 1888 - Rome, 1978) stands out due to his incessant research on different planes: from his first metaphysical period, in the 1910s, the work for which he is best known, which shows his personal take on classic art through his enigmatic piazzas of renaissance architecture, passing through iconographic themes in the 1920s and 1930s, his research into the techniques of the grand masters in the 1940s, up until his neo-metaphysical period between 1968 and 1976.
This exhibition covers Giorgio de Chirico’s main creative phases and shows his continuous study on the artistic idea, typified by constant searching on the iconographical and symbolic planes, being able to create a sense of continuity in the Italian artistic tradition. This commitment to continuity was one of the defining factors that lead to his fame on the international art scene, most of all his influence on the surrealist movement and other great artists and writers from the first half of the 20th Century.
