What Is Hidden

"A work of art must narrate something that does not appear within its outline. The objects and figures represented in it must likewise poetically tell you of something that is far away from them and also of what their shapes materially hide from us."
~ Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978)

Giorgio de Chirico, "Les Vexations du Penseur"
("The Vexations of the Thinker")
