This is the most comprehensive survey in many years of the work of one of the 20th century's greatest artists, Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966). Published to celebrate the centennial of his birth, the book accompanies an exhibition jointly organized by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Kunsthaus Zurich.

The Swiss-born Giacometti was a supremely inventive sculptor as well as a painter and draftsman of the highest distinction. This volume includes many of his early Cubist-influenced and Surrealist works, often slyly humorous and allusively erotic, as well as his masterful drawings and paintings, and the elongated sculptures of the human head and figure for which he is best known. Published with the full involvement of the Alberto Giacometti Foundation, this book will become the standard reference on the artist.
