Résumé : 

Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) is best known for his distinctive elongated figures that are inescapably linked to the post-War climate of existential despair. This book, created with unparalleled access to the extraordinary collection and archive of Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti, offers a lively, clear, and comprehensive introduction to Giacometti’s sculpture from his first works of art through his surrealist compositions to the emergence of his mature style, and presents the ongoing debates concerning his significance.
