Giorgio de Chirico was born in 1888 in Volos (Greece). Very early, he followed drawing studies to the polytechnic School of Athens, then, from 1906 to 1908, he studied to the Beaux-Arts Academy of Munich. Since 1910, his readings of Nietzsche and his books had an influence on de Chirico when he created his first self-portraits and metaphysics landscapes.
From 1911 to 1915, he settled down in Paris, and exhibited his works in various yearly Salons. At the end of the war the artist settled down in Rome where he took part in the exposures of “Valori plastici”. His first personal exhibition was organized in 1919. He lived again in Paris for 5 years (1924 to 1929). In 1926, he joined the movement of Novecento which defended an opinion against the modernism; he was criticized and most of his artistic relations would turned the back on him.
De Chirico used the topic of the double in canvases where he was painted near his mother, his brother or with mirrors. He also composed characters of Greek mythology, portraits, horses, and still life paintings he named “quiet lives”. De Chirico liked to blurred the charts of his own art, creating the enigma which would be his mark. Artists like Ernst, Yves Tanguy, Dali or Magritte underlined the influence which he had on them.
Giorgio de Chirico died in 1978 in Rome.
