De Chirico – The Mathematician

This last week I came across the drawing above by artist Georgio de Chirico called the Mathematician and, for whatever reason, I find myself going back to look at it almost compulsively. Now I have it here on ArtDuh, so I can look at it even more.

I’ve been drawn to de Chirico’s metaphysical work since I first saw it. There is something about the mannequins and dress-maker dolls, the t-squares, empty towns and bizarre perspectives that really appeals to me. I hope you like looking too on this fine Easter Sunday!
