Giorgio de Chirico exhibit, Paris

Matching the figures in the painting with the figures watching it must be a standard museum-photographer’s device, but I do love how this photo captures not just the art and not just the art-observers, but the art-observers in conversation: saying, What do you make of this painting? or maybe, What about lunch?


Museumgoers in front of Georgio de Chirico‘s “La Comedie et la Tragedie” (1926), Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, AFP photo from “de Chirico in Paris: Über das Vertrauen, die Zeit anhalten zu können,” by Werner Spies, FAZ.NET, 17 February 2009 :: thanks Ben!
