Giacometti: Pure Presence, by Paul Moorhouse
Talk | Royal Overseas League
Monday 23 November 2015 - 19:00 until 20:30
Alberto Giacometti 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 talk by exhibition curator Paul Moorhouse explores the national Portrait Gallery’s exhibition, which is the first to focus on the artist’s portraits, and covers the entire span of his career. It includes important paintings, sculpture and drawings with sections devoted to each of his principal models, and illuminates Giacometti’s obsessive evocation of a human presence.
