Two Otherworldly Surrealists Dream Up a Mythical World

28 October | New York

“To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits,” Giorgio de Chirico once claimed. In effect, discover a world between dreams and reality – artworks composed by two great artists, seeking to invent another realm. Il Pomeriggio di Arianna (Ariadne's Afternoon) by Giorgio de Chirico and Black Widow (Nativity) by Man Ray come together in the Impressionist & Modern Evening sale (28 October 2020, New York) to present two worlds, two visions – but one ideal.
