Something I saw in a dream

Hauntingly lovely paintings by Giorgio de Chirico, with poetically elusive titles:
"Monument to a Great Man"
"Mystery and Melancholy of a Street"
"Rose Tower"
"The Awakening of Ariadne"
"The Disturbing Muses"
"The Great Tower"
"The Nostalgia of the Infinite"
"The Red Tower"
"The Soothsayer's Recompense"
I feel like I've seen the places somewhere in a dream, or when I was little. That's the captivating power of his paintings.
