Giorgio de Chirico

Chirico, Giorgio de (1888–1978), Greek-born Italian painter who founded “metaphysical painting” and influenced surrealism. His works depict desolate, harshly hued scenes and solitary figures that might be seen in a nightmare: The Soothsayer's Recompense (1913), Melancholy and Mystery of a Street (1914), and The Poet and His Muse (c.1925).
