Giorgio de Chirico and Greece

A Voyage Through Memory

October 31, 2007-January 6, 2008

"Greece has inspired artists through the ages, but there are some things so beautiful they can only be imagined." -Giorgio de Chirico, Memoirs of My Life

The exhibition consisted of thirty-five paintings and sculptures as well as twenty-two lithographs and drawings from the artist's late period on loan from the De Chirico Foundation in Rome. The Exhibits show the inspiration of ancient Greece and classical Italian art on the artist (1888-1978).


In his work, myth encountered the modern age, as he sought to bridge time and history. In collaboration with the Giorgio e Isa de Chirico Foundation, Rome, and Athinais Cultural Centre, Athens.
