Area: 600 m2
Scope of work: Exhibition Design
Brought to life in collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico in Rome, the exhibition comprises a broad selection of 70 paintings, 2 lithography series, and 10 sculptures. During the years he studied at the Munich Academy of Fine arts between 1906 and 1909, de Chirico was influenced by the works of philosophers such as Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, and Otto Weininger, as well as the art of Arnold Böcklin and Max Klinger. With his writings and works on the “metaphysical,” de Chirico was also a source of inspiration for the Surrealists. The exhibition, which also includes one of the earliest works (1909) by the artist, encompasses a large selection of works extending particularly from the 1920s until his last years to mid-1970s. Born in Greece as the son of Italian parents, de Chirico (1888-1978) will visit İstanbul, the birthplace of his father Evaristo de Chirico, with his works.
