Painting and Poets, Vol. 2

This is another custom frame job I want to have done. The painting is called The Mystery and Melancholy of a Street.

Two things about it though:

1) I can't find a print of this painting anywhere. It's impossible. I've been looking for three years.

2) The passage I want to have framed with this one isn't a poem. It is actually a quote from the artist, Giorgio de Chirico.

Mystery and Melancholy of a Street

“Everything has two aspects: the current aspect, which we see nearly always and which ordinary men see, and the ghostly and metaphysical aspect, which only rare individuals may see in moments of clairvoyance and metaphysical abstraction.”
