Giorgio de Chirico. The Portrait – Figure and Form is the title of the exposition of 68 of the Master’s works at the Fortress of Montepulciano (the works are visiting from the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico in Rome).
On the calendar until September 30, 2013, the exhibit dedicated to the inventor of metaphysical painting joins the series of summer expositions inaugurated in 2011, with the Macchiaioli collection and, the following year, The Dragon and the Butterfly. Images from China in Montepulciano.
A unique artistic event that offers to the Italian and international public the occasion to become more familiar with the classical themes of portraiture and of self-portraiture, as worked in their multiple forms by the aptly-named “Pictor Optimus.” Expect to see a total of 44 paintings, seven sculptures and 17 works on paper, all from between the years 1925 and 1976, as well as a projection room running a historic documentary on the painter.
The exhibit, curated and installed by the architect Federico Lardera,was realized by the Fondazione Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte and the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico, with support from the Comune of Montepulciano, the Province of Siena and the local Rotary Club.
