  • About the Edition

    This comprehensive survey of the work of the Swiss-born modern master Alberto Giacometti offers a fresh and incisive account of his creative output. Published on the occasion of Giacometti"s first major museum presentation in the US in over a decade, the volume brings together nearly 200 sculptures, paintings and drawings to trace the artist"s wide-ranging and innovative engagement with the human form across various mediums. While Giacometti may be best known for his distinct figurative sculptures that emerged after World War II, including a series of elongated standing women, striding men and expressive busts, this volume devotes equal attention to the artist"s early and midcareer development. It explores his lesser-known engagement with Cubism and Surrealism as well as African, Oceanic and Cycladic art, while also highlighting his remarkable talents as a draftsman and painter alongside his sculptural oeuvre. Of particular focus is Giacometti"s studio practice, in addition to historical photographs documenting his relationship with the Guggenheim Museum - which hosted the artist"s first US museum exhibition, in 1955 - and with New York City. Exhibition: Guggenheim Museum, New York, USA (8.6. - 12.9.2018).

His work has been compared to that of the existentialists in literature.
