Louis Aragon, “Le Délire du fantassin”, à Giorgio de Chirico, in Dada, 15 mai 1919.
Though many of his paintings predate the start of Surrealism, Giorgio de Chirico had a profound impact on the movement. His starkly lit structures, desolate expanses, and inanimate figures are echoed throughout Surrealist landscape and portraiture. #TheSurrealists
