Most famous for his tall, thin, standing or walking figures, Alberto Giacometti (1901-66) is widely known as a leading modernist and surrealist sculptor working alongside Picasso, Miró and Ernst in Paris in the 1920s.He was also a painter, a draughtsman and a printmaker.
The National Portrait Gallery in London celebrated the artist through an exhibition called Pure Presence that was open until yesterday, January 10, 2016, in honour of the fiftieth anniversary of the artist’s death. We also remember another interesting exhibition at Kunsthaus Zurich, Drawings and Watercolours, that presented little-known works on paper by the famous Swiss artist.
