This catalogue of the most important retrospective of the work of the sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti in recent years references all the artist's periods and media: sculptures (plaster, bronze), paintings, drawings, prints... It will allow a comprehensive view of Alberto Giacometti's production, from early works to the surrealist period, from the return to figuration to his work from models, and to the invention of the great postwar icons. Giacometti's works are divided into fourteen original sections revealing the themes favoured by the artist - the representation of the head, the face, the female body, etc. The book is punctuated by seven essays written by leading art historians who dwell on the detours and questions that mark Alberto Giacometti's creative process, but also allow the reader to discover his relationship to loneliness and melancholy, and his hard work with his models: his wife Annette, his brother Diego, his close friends. - The book aims to introduce the reader to another Giacometti, the one who experiments with the limits of sculpture, and the formidable painter who also practices, alongside the portrait, the genres of landscape and still life.
