Esoterica de Chirico. Traveler between two worlds

The Georgian National Museum and the Italian Embassy in Georgia represent the founder of the metaphysical picture Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) in the National Gallery of Dmitry Shevardnadze. Exhibition "Esoterica de Chirico. Traveler between two worlds»Includes fifteen works created between the 1920s and 1970s.

Metaphysical painting of Giorgio de Chirico is considered one of the greatest backgrounds of the surrealistic movement. The structure of cities, the architecture of houses, squares, gardens, public places, gates, railway stations are expressed by bright light, sharp shades, pure colors and sensations as if the artist establishes the ideal of eternal forms. His works often reflect the motifs of antiquity and renaissance.

In his paintings, the Italian surrealist uses the principles of esotericism, he managed to add secret meaning to lifeless things, which is evident in his first metaphysical work, “The Mystery of the Autumn Day”.
