Alberto Giacometti s unsurpassed ability to inscribe his figures into a unique place and time of their own is the central theme of this volume, whose unusual design sets new standards for depicting these distinctive features. It clearly shows that the work by the Swiss artist (1901 1966) has maintained its strong presence to this day, and that its influence on ensuing generations has been uninterrupted. According to one of the book s theses, Giacometti s wholly innovative approach to the human figure in space and time makes him one of the inventors of virtual space. This publication presents a comprehensive overview of Giacometti s mature works. By way of numerous sculptures, from bronzes to a few original plaster casts, as well as paintings and drawings, this richly illustrated volume provides a multi-faceted view of the fascinating oeuvre created by one of the twentieth century s most acclaimed artists.
