Giacometti: Pure Presence

15 October 2015 - 10 January 2016

Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) is widely regarded as one of the most important and distinctive artists of the 20th century. A restless innovator, he explored a range of styles and subjects; however portraiture remained a continuous preoccupation.

This major exhibition is the first to focus on Giacometti’s portraits and covers the entire span of his career. The show includes important paintings, sculpture and drawings within sections devoted to each of his principal models, and illuminates Giacometti’s obsessive evocation of a human presence.
