METAPHYSICAL ART – The de Chirico Journals

n. 3/4 (2003-2004)

“De Chirico’s green. The sky of Portrait of Guillaume Apollinaire (1914) and of the Italian Piazzas is not blue, but green: the symbolic colour of Rebirth. The periodical “Metaphysical Art” posts de Chirico’s green on its cover as a distinctive attribute, like a banner. De Chirico paints the sky green, the green of a profound vision, “beyond the physical” (Metaphysics).
The de Chirico Foundation periodical came into being like the turning of a page, like a fresh start to the study of a painter who is the most complex artist among the creators of modernity, yet least explored.”
Jole de Sanna, 2003
Due to the periodical’s published form, text illustrations appear in the Italian version of a specific essay. It is therefore suggested that the reader consult the Italian text to see the images (which are clearly and consecutively numbered) in parallel to reading an essay in English.
