En entrant dans le « cubo abierto » de Roberto Matta, le spectateur ne peut pas analyser l’œuvre ; il doit se soumettre à la synthèse et accueillir le cube d’un seul tenant, sans divisions, sans fractures ; il doit laisser derrière lui la méthode fragmentaire avec laquelle raisonne son esprit. Le spectateur ne peut que se laisser submerger par l’œuvre d’art. Où loge la folie A, Où loge la folie B, L’Honniaveuglant, Les Grandes expectatives et Le Où à marée haute sont les cinq toiles qui constituent ce cube ouvert de l’artiste chilien, né en 1911 à Santiago et mort en 2002 à Civitavecchia en Italie. L’idée de ce « cubo abierto » a pris naissance dans la tête de l’artiste dans les années 60 et a pour la première fois été exposé dans les années 70. Roberto Matta — The open cube
Giorgio de Chirico (Italian: [ˈdʒordʒo deˈkiːriko]; July 10, 1888 – November 20, 1978) was a Greek-born Italian artist. In the years before World War I, he founded the scuola metafisica art movement, which profoundly influenced the surrealists. After 1919, he became interested in traditional painting techniques, and worked in a neoclassical or neo-Baroque style, while frequently revisiting the metaphysical themes of his earlier work. Life and works De Chirico[note 1] was born in Volos, Greece, to a Genovese mother and a Sicilian father. After studying art in Athens—mainly under the guidance of the influential Greek painter Georgios Roilos and Georgios Jakobides—and Florence, he moved to Germany in 1906, following his father's death in 1905.

Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. Fabrizio Clerici negli anni cinquanta Fabrizio Clerici (Milano, 15 maggio 1913 – Roma, 7 giugno 1993) è stato un pittore e scenografo italiano visionario e surrealista, tra i più importanti del XX secolo. La sua pittura, piena di riferimenti artistici e letterari, è intrisa delle umane inquietudini di quel Novecento alienante e ostile che ha caratterizzato la fine del secondo millennio. Il suo immaginario coniuga le suggestioni di Giovanni Battista Piranesi, l'autorevolezza negli studi sull'antichità classica del gesuita ed erudito tedesco del XVII secolo Athanasius Kircher, così come di Caspar David Friedrich e Arnold Böcklin, trasferendone i codici figurativi e di ricerca nel suo paesaggio contemporaneo, inevitabilmente intriso di inquietudini ed introspezioni.

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marqués de Dalí de Pubol (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989), known as Salvador Dalí (Catalan pronunciation: [səɫβəˈðo ðəˈɫi]), was a prominent Spanish Catalan surrealist painter born in Figueres, Spain. Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media. Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to an "Arab lineage", claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors.

Joan Miró Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and famously declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting. Biography Born into the families of a goldsmith and a watch-maker, he grew up in the Barri Gòtic neighborhood of Barcelona. His father was Miquel Miró Adzerias and his mother was Dolors Ferrà.
