Description of the picture:
Metaphysical interior with cookies – de Chirico. 1968. 80×60
Composition "Metaphysical interior with cookies" lost the stuffy atmosphere of a closed place, characteristic of the master’s early works, thanks to his placement in urban reality. In addition, the scene is illuminated by an internal front light, which adds to it theatricality and artistic purity, which was absent in early works. Despite the sharpness and angular shape, these works of de Knrico have a surprisingly subtle and refined color, which gives the whole painting mood a certain amount of light sadness."
