Italian, 1888-1978. Giorgio de Chirico was an artist and founder of the Scuola Metafisica art movement that influenced many surrealist artists. The artist is mainly known for his works featuring long shadows, Roman arcades, illogical perspective, trains, and mannequins. They also depict still lifes and dreamy town squares. Giorgio De Chirico's artworks often reflect his appreciation of Arthur Schopenhauer and Arthur Schopenhauer's philosophies and birthplace mythology. Giorgio De Chirico was born in Volos in Greece and attended the High School of Fine Arts, Athens, and later went on study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. During his time in Germany, Chirico began working with mythology as a new subject- a prominent subject matter among Symbolist painters involving Arnold Böcklin. After his move to Florence, Chirico started painting his signature works. A few of his notable works include Enigma of an Afternoon (1910), The Song of Love (1914), and Mystery and Melancholy of a Street (1914). In 1917, the artist, with help from Carlo Carrà, organized his thoughts, encompassing Metaphysical painting to writing. His idea garnered success and influenced André Breton and René Magritte. However, he soon renounced Metaphysical as well as Surrealist art. After the year 1919, Chirico became a modern art critic and started studying classical painting styles. He experimented with the neo-Baroque or neoclassical style. The artist also continued working with his metaphysical themes from time to time. By making copies of his early Metaphysical works, Chirico earned high profits. Giorgio De Chirico painting for sale is often available at auctions.
