Giorgio de Chirico is best known as the co-founder of the Metaphysical School art movement that flourished in Italy in the early 20th century. With eerie, dreamlike paintings of dimly lit city squares populated with marble statues, trains, mannequins and extended shadows, he illustrated the mysteries of the mind. The artist deliberately distorted perspectives and reduced forms into flattened planes. De Chirico profoundly influenced the Surrealists, including André Breton, Salvador Dalí, and René Magritte, but while they drew inspiration from Freudian psychoanalysis, de Chirico cited the philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche and Arthur Schopenhauer as his great influences. Today, de Chirico's work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, among others. On the secondary market, his canvases often attract seven-figure prices. In the 1920s de Chirico rejected the metaphysical style he had pioneered in the previous decade and adopted a more traditional approach to painting.
