This catalogue was published to accompany the exhibition Giorgio de Chirico: Myth and Mystery, held at the Estorick Collection in 2014.
Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) was the visionary father of ‘Metaphysical’ art, whose dreamlike imagery exerted an enormous impact on the development of Surrealism. This catalogue aims to highlight de Chirico’s enduring preoccupation with particular motifs, themes, and subjects - and the peculiar power of their translation in sculpture, in addition to presenting a number of related works on paper and canvas.
The catalogue includes contributions from Alexander Estorick on de Chirico in context and Franco Calarota on his ‘divinatory instinct’, alongside two pieces written by the artist himself.
