To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams..

Giorgio de Chirico

Giorgio de Chirico (July 10, 1888 – November 20, 1978) was an influential pre-Surrealist and then Surrealist Greek-Italian painter born in Volos, Greece, to a Genovese mother and a Sicilian father. He founded the scuola metafisica art movement. His name (pronounced “JOHR-joh day kee-REE-koh”, ) is traditionally written De Chirico (capitalized De) when alone.
