Giacometti, Alberto. Menz, /Caser. foreword. Schneider, Nadia and others.
JRP/Ringer Zurich 2009
Swiss-born sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) is best known for the bronzes of ghostly and attenuated figures that made him a key member of the Surrealist movement. This retrospective focuses on the artist's so-called “crisis period” after 1935 and during the Second World War, which coincided with a larger critical juncture for modernism itself. In 1936, Giacometti began to concentrate his attention on the human head, focusing on the model's gaze, and eventually giving his sculptures an extruded appearance.
