Categories Giorgio de Chirico My pinacoteca Canto d’amore Post author By C .T.

In the previous page of Man and his Symbols of the one I referred yesterday, the author writes about Song of Love (above): “The marble head of the goddess and the rubber glove are crass opposites. The green ball seems to act as a uniting symbol.” Unlike modern orchestral music (the charlatanry that started with Schoenberg), I don’t believe that these paintings are charlatanry. On the contrary: very few painters have depicted the soulless zeitgeist of the modern world better than de Chirico. After all, Schoenberg was Jewish; de Chirico’s ethnicity was Mediterranean.
