Giorgio de Chirico’s description of New York as a “feverish and dreamy city” finds form in this painting  from 1972, Metaphysical Interior in Manhattan. Everyday objects pile into a vaguely human shape within a distorted room that opens onto city skies. The artist founded Metaphysical Painting, a movement that trafficked in the unexpected and irrational.
