The very last piece you posted looks A LOT LIKE the art of de Chirico. In the picture, I see a railroad going over classical arches. De Chirico did that a lot as his canvas contained stuff from different eras; he sort of made the centuries collide together in one appalling scream of discord and disunity. (He had a few works, from 1914, that are, to me, pictorial omens of world war one.)

Do you know why your artist bears such a stark resemblance to De Chirico.

Incidentally, as De Chirico aged, he creativity waned and he became a damn fascist and admirer of Mussolini.
