Giorgio de Chirico (/ˈkɪrɪk/ KIRR-ik-oh, Italian:[ˈdʒordʒo deˈkiːriko]; 10 July 1888 ? 20 November 1978) was an Italian artist and writer born in Greece. In the years before World War I, he founded the scuola metafisica art movement, which profoundly influenced the surrealists. His most well-known works often feature Roman arcades, long shadows, mannequins, trains, and illogical perspective. His imagery reflects his affinity for the philosophy of Nietzsche and for the mythology of his birthplace.
