"The Return of Craftsmanship" (1919) is the title of an article by Giorgio de Chirico published in Valori Plastici. In this article De Chirico advocated a return to traditional methods and iconography. This article heralded an abrupt change in his artistic orientation, as he adopted a classicizing manner inspired by such old masters as Raphael and Signorelli, and became an outspoken opponent of modern art.
