SUMMARY

The subject of this painting is one of the scenes from the story of the Trojan War recounted by Homer: Hector, a brave Trojan warrior, bids farewell to his beloved wife Andromache to go off to war. Here, the couple is transformed into the inorganic mannequins that Chirico was very partial to, while in the background, bleak structures are depicted in peculiar perspective. It is said that an image of a street appearing in such a metaphysical painting by Chirico was inspired by the arcade in Turin. This work representing the melancholy of the streets in Italy is an idiosyncratic work created with the wind of surrealism in the early 20th century.
