Giorgio De Chirico "Il Pittore" Lithograph
Work of art by Giorgio De Chirico.
Lithograph on paper, ex. 53/99. Year 1973. Its dimensions are 70 x 50 cm.
De Chirico is one of the greatest Italian artists, who with his "metaphysical painting" was able to lay the foundations of Surrealism and an art that became a representation of the artist's unconscious—made of mystery, loneliness and disquieting muses that observe the viewer, despite their lack of eyes.
