Description

Alberto Giacometti (1901-66) is one of the most significant sculptors of the twentieth century, internationally acclaimed for his unique style and innovative vision. His distinctive elongated figures are inescapably associated with the post-war climate of existentialist despair and almost more recognisable than the artist's name.Part of the Tate Introductions series, this richly illustrated and accessible book provides an engaging and concise account of Giacometti's work and life. It explores the story of the artist's evolution, from his first sketchbooks and professional works of art through his extraordinary surrealist compositions, to the emergence of his mature style.Part of the Tate Introduction series, this book offers a concise and engaging account of Giacometti's life, his art, and the ongoing debates concerning his significance.
