Main exponent of the art movement of metaphysical painting, Giorgio De Chirico (1888 – 1978) has realized, especially since the 1910, a series of works characterized by unrealistic prospects, immersed in an atmosphere of transcendence.
In addition to the recurring essential architectures, the works exhibit objects that were painted with a total meticulousness and attention to the details, but incongruous with the context, so as to create a definite effect of removal from their own realism.
De Chirico wrote about this, in his work Statues, meubles et généraux (1927), the following words:
“It has already been noted more than once the curious aspect that manage to have beds, wardrobes, dressing tables, sofas, tables, when we suddenly find them on the road, in a scenario in which we are not used to seeing them […] The furniture, taken from the atmosphere that reigns in our homes and exposed outdoor, arouse in us an emotion that let us to look the way in a new different light”.
