DALLA COLLEZIONE LAURA TANSINI, ROMA
Giorgio de Chirico wrote in Hebdomeros: “And then came the rain; the rain today, as it was yesterday, and as it will be tomorrow; that rain which is not overly heavy, but rather constant, rain without end”. The author may well be describing the tide of water depicted in this extraordinary drawing. The plasticity of the water, in perpetual motion, invades the interior of a house, evoking the Genesis flood narrative. This composition is a standout example from the Calligrammes series by de Chirico.
