Giacometti in the pantheon of artistic greats
Alberto Giacometti was a Swiss artist who became famous for his wiry, elongated sculptures. This exhibition in London, the UK’s first major retrospective of his work for 20 years, places it in the context of other artistic greats such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Edgar Degas. Bringing together more than 250 works, the exhibition aims to show that Giacometti was just as vital as any of these artists. It includes plasters and drawings which have never been exhibited before, and showcases the full evolution of Giacometti’s career across five decades. Giacometti runs at the Tate Modern until September 10. For more information visit www.tate.org.uk.
