Giorgio de Chirico Immagini metafisiche

Riccardo Dottori
La nave di Teseo, Milan 2018

In this volume, Riccardo Dottori offers a rigorous and exhaustive reflection on Giorgio de Chirico’s Metaphysical Art through the lens of philosophy. In twelve thematic chapters, the author brings to light the genesis of de Chirico’s poetics starting from Schopenhauer’s concept of art.

“De Chirico did not hide the fact that his painting was the fruit of his cultural preparation, including poetry, literature, music and philosophy, especially with regard to his relationship with Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.”
Riccardo Dottori

“With this publication Riccardo Dottori provides an interpretational key that allows for the decoding of de Chirico’s metaphysical compositions, through his reading of their semiotical and philosophical properties.”
