À travers l’Europe 

Exhibition of de Chirico’s lithographes

on occasion of the I European Lawyers Day

10 December 2014

Il Consiglio Nazionale Forense, Rome

Giorgio de Chirico’s 66 litographes executed as illustrations for Guillaume Apollinaire’s Calligrammes (Gallimard, Paris 1930) and a selection of lithographes from other themes by the artist were exhibited on occasion of the I European Lawyers Day at Il Consiglio Nazionale Forense in Rome.

 Giorgio de Chirico’s life is anti-provincial: his journey through the great cities of Europe and New York is as if etched by the analysis of an observer which is rarely found in contemporary artists. In order to find a similar critic in an Italian traveller, we would have to look to the European travels of Foscolo, Alfieri, Cellini and Leonardo.
