Product Description: "Space does not exist," the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) wrote in 1949. "It has to be created... Every sculpture made on the assumption that space exists is wrong, there is only the illusion of space." This fascinating statement serves as a conceptual underpinning for Hatje Cantz's new appraisal of the artist's mature work...read more

9783775727150 | Hatje Cantz Pub, April 30, 2011, cover price $60.00 | About this edition: "Space does not exist," the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) wrote in 1949.

One hundred years after his birth and a generation after his death, Alberto Giacometti is recognized as one of the small group of modern masters who dominated art during much of the 20th century. This centennial volume both celebrates his achievement and reexamines his work, contributing to a more focused concentration on the art itself. The Swiss-born Giacometti was a supremely inventive sculptor as well as a painter and draftsman of the highest distinction. Included here are many of his early Cubist-influenced and Surrealist works, often slyly humorous and allusively erotic, as well as his masterful drawings and paintings, and the elongated sculptures of the human head and figure for which he is best known. The book's three essays provide a comprehensive view of Giacometti's work and its multiple levels of meaning, examining his Surrealist years; the artist's unique concept of inner and outer vision; and his career as a whole, in formal and other terms.

Yves Bonnefoy examines the entire range of Alberto Giacometti's creative production—sculpture, painting, drawing, and lithographs—in this classic, singular study of the Swiss sculptor. By focusing on the works rather than on the details of the artist's life, and by relying on the evidence of Giacometti's important writings and statements, the author—a poet, essayist, and friend of the artist—provides a wealth of interpretations of Giacometti's drawings, canvases, and sculptures.Bonnefoy's eloquent and incisive text traces Giacometti's artistic development—from his experience with surrealism, to his return to figurative sculpture, and then to the period of his monumental Walking Man series. The superbly designed and copiously illustrated volume is further enriched with archival photographs of Giacometti's studios and five decades of his artistic life in Paris. Accompanied by an extensive biographical chronology and bibliography, and illustrated with nearly 600 works and documents, the revised edition of this oversized, exquisitely-produced monograph will continue to be the essential, authoritative reference on this artist
