Author: Alberton, Roberto ; Silvia Pegoraro (eds)
Price: Not Available
Description: Milano: Silvana, 2010. 29cm., hardcover, 163pp., 85 plates, most in color. Italian-English text. Exhibition held at Scuderie del Castello di Miramare, Trieste. Summary: The volume celebrates Giorgio de Chirico (Volos, 1888 - Rome, 1978) through a wide selection of works that effectively illustrates the birth and development of Metaphysics. Statues, muses, mannequins and squares stand in all their silent and epic grandeur, depicting the feelings and fears that move our inner self. Through this extraordinary journey, the great artist develops the lesson of Plato, who stated in the Phaedrus: “The products of painting lie before us as if they were living things; but if you question them, they remain majestically silent”.
