The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

The Disquieting Muses

This painting, the work of the great Italian artist and main exponent of #metaphysical painting Giorgio De Chirico, entitled “The Disquieting Muses” has several curious characteristics.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The deliberately erroneous and deformed #perspective is a distinctive element of this pictorial current, in which reality appears so altered as to be lifeless. In fact, in the background, the Estense Castle of Ferrara has dark windows to indicate the absence of who should live there; while the #chimneys on the factory next door are devoid of their typical fumes as if they were not in operation

‣ This immobility is made even better through the #statues in the foreground, whose busts evoked classical Greek culture and whose heads are of mannequins. The subjects are two of the famous muses, those mythological figures turned to the protection and inspiration of the arts, but in this context they can’t play their role.

Through these expedients, #DeChirico manifests his refusal towards modernity as a rapid advancement of time because according to him novelty and progress are concepts that go beyond temporal factor
