Interpretation of ‘The Disquieting Muses’:
This painting was painted by De Chirico, pioneer of surrealism. This painting represents two mannequins placed in an empty square with a castle and a factory in the background. The painting is constructed by respecting the traditional organisation of perspective of space, which is not usual in the surrealist movement. The image is built around a duality between classical modernity and technology, between a dreamlike reality and the illusion of dreams.
These two mannequins, a man and a woman, are to be viewed as part of the painter's childhood. His parents owned a fashion house where many sewing models scared Chirico, who was then a child. They stand out, in the canvas, without men, as the only subterfuges of the human being. They also represent the two pillars of classical modernity: individual and universality. They can also be seen as the absent heroes of the past in this empty and deserted city without human beings. They are surrounded by heterogeneous objects (boxes, tees, rulers) that mix with symbols evoking ancient Greece. The drapery, the column plinth, the shield, transform these models into ruins or ancient statues. The models are redundant in these metaphysical works and symbolise the reflection of the unconscious.
