This volume from the Art to Readseries makes an outstanding introduction to the life and work of this important artist. Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) was born and raised in Val Bregaglia in Switzerland, but following his studies in Geneva and Rome he lived primarily in Paris. As an artist, Giacometti's earliest affiliations were among the Surrealists, but today his reduced and exposed bronze figures seem much more in sympathy with the Existentialist worldview (particularly as these pieces were developed during and after World War II, and also because of the artist's close friendship with Jean-Paul Sartre). Notoriously self-critical, and always paring back the form at hand, Giacometti labored tirelessly to reconcile humanity's outer appearance and inner condition, never arriving at a satisfactory realization: "If I could make a sculpture or a painting (but I'm not sure I want to) in just the way I'd like to, they would have been made long since (but I am incapable of saying what I want)," he once lamented. "I don't see my sculpture, I see blackness."

Alberto Giacometti's attenuated figures of the human form are among the most significant artistic images of the twentieth century. Jean-Paul Sartre and Andre Breton are just two of the great thinkers whose thought has been nurtured by the graceful, harrowing work of Giacometti, which continues to resonate with artists, writers and audiences. Timothy Mathews explores fragility, trauma, space and relationality in Giacometti's art and writing and the capacity to relate that emerges. In doing so, he draws upon the novels of W.G. Sebald, Samuel Beckett and Cees Nooteboom and the theories of Maurice Blanchot and Bertolt Brecht; and recasts Giacometti's Le Chariot as Walter Benjamin's angel of history. This book invites readers on a voyage of discovery through Giacometti's deep concerns with memory, attachment and humanity. Both a critical study of Giacometti's work and an immersion in its affective power, it asks what encounters with Giacometti's pieces can tell us about our own time and our own ways of looking; and about the humility of relating to art.

Giacommetti was one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Breaking both with the figurative tradition and with contemporary tendencies that gave priority to the play of signs over the exploration of the human condition, he developed an art that speaks with unmatched gravity and intensity of the presence of other beings--for beings standing before him in that moment of their existence. This art is not simply art: it is a metaphysical and moral statement of the kind that society needs.

"The first manifestations of Giacometti's talent drew on the by then widespread achievements of the Avant-Garde of the 1920s and '30s. Even so, his forms in the Cubist manner, his compact volumes inspired by Africa and the Cyclades, and his volumes devoid of objects with a symbolic function in the Surrealist spirit led him inexorably around 1935 to acknowledge a flight from a reality that was far beyond reach." "He spent the rest of his life, as this book explains, exorcising this existential and formal void through a return to the human figure. The question that dominated his work was how to restore in art the sense of the presence of the being in space. Giacometti sought to establish his contingent volume, which became increasingly slender and threadlike, and to seize its finiteness in a reality, however banal it might be. He began to develop heads and nudes modeled in the void, in that experience of nothingness that opposed his quest for the absolute, a metaphor of the human condition." "Giacometti's written testimony and reflections, including those from his Surrealist period, are remarkable for their aptness and their poetic quality. In them he pours out his doubts, his suffering and his hopes as a creator as artists have rarely been capable of doing." "The reproductions include: Silent Mobile Objects (1931); I Can Only Speak Indirectly of My Sculptures (1933); and Letter to Pierre Matisse (1948). The book also reprints two interviews: one with Pierre Schneider, My Long March (1961), and the other with Andre Parinaud, Why Am I a Sculptor? (1962)."--BOOK JACKET.
