Published to mark the 50th anniversary of the artist's death, Alberto Giacometti: A Line Through Time presents an illuminating introduction to Giacometti's artistic career, key themes in his work and the context of European modernism in which Giacometti produced his most important art. Curators and Giacometti experts Claudia Milburn and Calvin Winner consider the artist's Parisian sources of inspiration; his patronage and his relationship with the Sainsbury family; his use of materials and processes; and his influence on British art world and artists. Alongside key paintings, drawings and sculptures by Giacometti , this beautifully-illustrated volume includes pieces by a number of artists who influenced and were influenced by Giacometti, including Brassaļ, Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier, William Turnbull, and Eduardo Paolozzi.
