Subseries C. "Giorgio de Chirico and the Myth of Ariadne." Nov. 3, 2002-Jan. 5, 2003


Scope and Content Note

"Giorgio de Chirico and the Myth of Ariadne" was an exhibition devoted to De Chirico's works exploring the classical Greek myth of Ariadne, a woman who was abandoned on a desert island by her lover, Theseus. Being a culmination of some fifty works of art, the exhibition illustrated a progression of De Chirico's work throughout his lifetime, and the autobiographical nature of his art. The exhibition was curated by Michael Taylor and was shown at the PMA and the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art in London in 2003. The bulk of the files are dated from 2000 to 2002.


The files in the PMA Archives concerning this exhibition are subdivided into four categories: administrative files, research files, and object files.
