Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a splendidly illustrated monographic summary of the life and main works, with complete descriptive captions, of Giorgio de Chirico.
“Giorgio de Chirico is, first of all, absolutely modern, and if geometry and the effects of perspective are the main elements of his art, its ordinary means of expression and emotion, it is also true that his work resembles no other, ancient or modern, that is based on these elements” (A. Soffici).
Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a monographic summary of the life and work of Giorgio de Chirico.
The short introduction examines the circumstances that led to the emergence and evolution of the artist’s personality. This is followed by a veritable “guided tour” through an imaginary museum of his masterpieces, splendidly illustrated, with complete descriptive captions.
A small anthology of critical and documentary writings and an essential bibliography make the books in this series up-to-date tools for students and art lovers alike.
