Beaux Arts Special Edition / Giorgio de Chirico. Metaphysical painting
The exhibition "Giorgio de Chirico. Metaphysical Painting" retraces the artistic and philosophical journey and influences that nourished the artist Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) from Munich to Turin, then to Paris, where he discovered the pictorial avant-gardes of his time. In an unprecedented way, the links of the painter, discovered by Apollinaire and then supported by the merchant Paul Guillaume, with Parisian cultural and literary circles are highlighted. Born in Greece, trained in Munich in 1908 in the thought of Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, then passing through Milan, it was in Paris in 1911 that he established his singular plastic vocabulary in contact with the modernist pictorial revolutions. He was soon noticed by some of the artistic personalities of his time. Guillaume Apollinaire, Maurice Raynal and André Salmon, but also André Breton, Paul Éluard, Jean Paulhan, were among the first to take an interest in his work and to promote it.
Beaux Arts Éditions is particularly interested in unique pictorial research, as well as in the links between Chirico and the artists of his time.
