Alberto Giacometti – At the peak of his price [20/05/2007]

Born in October 1901 in Stampa, Switzerland, Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) moved to Paris in 1922, where he came into contact with the cubists and discovered the formal perfection of traditional African art. From 1930, he was rubbing shoulders with the surrealist movement, met Masson and Breton, read Freud and Bataille, and created symbolic surrealist sculptures exuding violent eroticism. But the death of his father in 1933 was to mark a turning point and the beginnings of a new artistic direction. Giacometti grew to enjoy solitude and returned to portraits, for which he was rewarded with expulsion from the surrealist movement. He embarked on a ten-year search, destroying most of the works he had created and many of his scale drawings, though some were preserved in a matchbox. After the war, Giacometti developed a unique language that found expression in thread-like, pitted silhouettes; these brought him, during his lifetime, an international recognition that has never waned.
