Gi­a­cometti in the pan­theon of artis­tic greats

The National - News - The Review - - Round Up -

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.
