Mystery and Melancholy of a Street

Mystery and Melancholy of a Street by Giorgio de Chirico. It’s a painting where is clear the day will soon end. The painting is heavily influenced by the writings of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. De Chirico painted lonely, urban landscapes that almost had a large locomotive. The immensity of the buildings were intended to dwarf the spectator and for them to become uncomfortable.  For me it feels so much loneliness and fear from the artist.
Here is a nice video of his artwork
