for one of two group shows in Sept. (Chicago and L.A.).

Biscuit Paintings by Giorgio De Chirico

 How many "Metaphysical Interiors with Biscuits" did Italian artist 
Giorgio de Chirico do, I wonder? The top image was painted in 1916. 
He is one of my favorite painters and these biscuit paintings 
are fabulous.

3 notable Los Angeles collectors.
The frames that I chose for all of them are beautiful solid wood, made in Italy.
