Product Description:

Perhaps the most preeminent sculptor of the twentieth century Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) radically transformed the modern vision of art with his attenuated bronze figures whittled down to the very brink of existence. This substantial monograph supplies a new standard overview of his tremendous achievement. A decade-long labor of love by Veronique Wiesinger Director of the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti in Paris this book emphasizes the sculptor as a thinker underlining the philosophical (existentialist) drive of his work and its development away from Surrealism. Wiesinger's account of Giacometti's career pursues the artist through a series of formal breakthroughs each of which produces a more succinct statement on existence and the human figure. At more than 300 pages and with an abundance of color plates this handsome volume is the essential Giacometti monograph.
