In the 1920s, de Chirico abandoned his unique early Surrealist style, which had had a great influence on the group of artists gathered around André Breton, and in turning to the Classical world as a new source of inspiration, he embraced the avant-garde trend led by Pablo Picasso’s Neo-Classical period.
Guerriero Frigio col Suo Cavallo e Un Tempietto is a splendid example of the subject of animals in an enigmatic locale, which was to become one of the most iconic mythological subjects in de Chirico’s oeuvre. He would return to this theme frequently, surrounding his equine figures with antique ruins and classical human figures as seen in the present work.
