The Sibyls

Edition of 9 copies, 7 of which numbered from I to VII plus two artist's proofs E/A V/II E/A II/II and one proof 0/0 to be donated to the Giorgio ed Isa de Chirico Foundation. Edition made at the Bonvicini Foundry in Verona (1988 and 1991) on the occasion of the centenary of the Maestro's birth, and authorized by Mrs. Isabella de Chirico to Mrs. Lisa Sotilis on March 27, 1987 Taken from an original chalk dated 1970. On the base, title and signature Le Sibille / G. de Chirico: mark of the centenary of the birth of Maestro Giorgio de Chirico. In his paintings, as in his sculptures, the human figure does not appear except in the form of a mannequin, immobile and devoid of humanity, without arms, without mouth, without eyes: blind statues such as Homer, Thyrsia and Oedipus, figures that derive from a culture where not seeing was a sign of wisdom and implied an ability to see beyond. The statues he creates are like materializations of the subjects of paintings which, from unreal and metaphysical contexts, are transported and decontextualized into reality. A reality that however becomes itself more acted out than real, which can exist and be understood only in the space of a mental representation.
