Metaphysical painting: Giorgio de Chirico

“They say that Rome is the center of the world and thatSpanish is the center of Rome. My wife and I, therefore, we live in the center of the center of the world …”
Giorgio de Chirico

I would say yes.

Love Song by Giorgio De Chirico-1914Just in Piazza di Spagna, in fact, is the House-Museum of Giorgio de Chirico, italian painter, leading exponent of the artistic metaphysical painting.

Famous, his manikins, who began painting in the early decades of 1900.
In various metaphysical paintings, objects are totally incongruous with the context, like a rowboat in a living room.

So, before tackling the Spanish Steps, I suggest you visit this beautiful house…

Three floors of art, among his works, and romance between his canvas and brushes, in the beautiful seventeenth-century Palace of the Borgognoni.
