Art of the Day – 6/12/13 (Mystery and Melancholy of a Street, Giorgio de Chirico)

Daily Artwork — “Mystery and Melancholy of a Street, Giorgio de Chirico, 1914”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1914– Mystery and Melancholy of a Street. Oil on Canvas. Metaphysical Art style. Giorgio de Chirico (1888 – 1978). Private collection.

In this unsettling, haunting work, Giorgio De Chirico, a founder of the Pittura Metafisica (Metaphysical Painting) style, a forerunner to Surrealism, presents the very concept of the street as it being dense in history and in possibility, in melancholy and in mystery. Any banal empty street, in this light, could be seen as sinister and yet disturbingly beautiful..(RealityBites)
