giacometti and the guggenheim

34.00

from painting to sculptor. giacometti was one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. his work was particularly influenced by artistic styles such as cubism and surrealism. 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 hugely 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.
