Pera Museum proudly presented an exhibition of Giorgio de Chirico, a pioneer of the metaphysical art movement and one of the most extraordinary artists of the 20th century.
Brought to life in collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico in Rome, the exhibition comprised a broad selection of 70 paintings, 2 lithography series, and 10 sculptures. During the years he studied at the Munich Academy of Fine arts between 1906 and 1909, de Chirico was influenced by the works of philosophers such as Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, and Otto Weininger, as well as the art of Arnold Böcklin and Max Klinger. With his writings and works on the “metaphysical,” de Chirico was also a source of inspiration for the Surrealists. The exhibition, which also included one of the earliest works (1909) by the artist, encompassed a large selection of works extending particularly from the 1920s until his last years to mid-1970s. Born in Greece as the son of Italian parents, de Chirico (1888-1978) visited İstanbul, the birthplace of his father Evaristo de Chirico, with his works.

When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.
