The Giorgio de Chirico exhibition at the Orangery Museum: "Metaphysical Painting"


  • Very nice retrospective of Giorgio de Chirico, a painter born in Greece but trained in Germany (1888-1978).
  • The exhibition has its place in the Orangery Museum, as the Paul Guillaume collection, which was Giorgio de Chirico's very first merchant, is on permanent display at the Orangery Museum.
  • The exhibition retraces the artistic and philosophical influences that nourished Giorgio de Chirico from Munich to Turin and then to Paris.
  • Metaphysics for the painter makes the absurdity of the world and human activities more visible. Here, it is above all a reference to the absurdity of the war of 14/18.
  • The works, although enigmatic and often very disconcerting, are very accessible to young audiences. It's an intriguing dreamlike universe that will appeal to the youngest ones.
