Giorgio de Chirico: Catalogue Raissoné of the artist’s sacred art

“Men have forgotten that Art is always sacred, even even when treating a profane subject. Art is sacred in itself and its greatness does not pertain to its exterior circumstances, as is the case for the subject matter, and what I say is very evident when one considers the works of the Great Masters, who did not hesitate to represent Parnassus and pagan divinities near a wall upon which scenes from Christianity are painted, with the Virgin, Jesus Christ and the Saints.”
