Metaphysical art is an Italian art movement created by Giorgio de Chirico and Carlo Carrà. Although the movement was short-lived, their art was quite powerful with its ability to show such powerful dream-like imagery. This style of art creates an especially mysterious atmosphere with the bizarre juxtaposition of simple and natural figures, objects, and actions.
Giorgio de Chirico and Carlo Carrà depicted a dreamlike imagery, with figures and objects seemingly frozen in time. Metaphysical Painting artists accept the representation of the visible world in a traditional perspective space, but the unusual arrangement of human beings as dummy-like models, objects in strange, illogical contexts, the unreal lights and colors, the unnatural static of still figures.
