Exhibition Images

These early bronze sculptures and drawings demonstrate how De Chirico (1888–1978) uses figures from mythology, archaeological artifacts, and historical events to create images that suggest an alternate, mysterious reality.


This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy, in celebration of the “2013 Year of Italian Culture in the United States,” an initiative held under the auspices of the President of Italian Republic with the Support of the Corporate Ambassadors Eni and Intesa Sanpaolo.
