The Seer

The Seer by Giorgio de Chirico is a 35 1/4 by 27 5/8 oil on canvas painting done in the 1915. He freezes the reality and distorts the tailor in the picture with no arms and distorts his face. This painting symbolizes a heroic past of antique statuary. Also it alludes the lost world of silence and poignant longing for human community. I like how neutral colors and the fact that the person looks like a tailor. This picture just stood out to me!
