Vintage hardback coffee table book featuring the work of artist, Alberto Giacometti. By Bernard Lamarche-Vadel, published in 1989. 1st edition, 176 pages.
"This work attempts the difficult task of a reevaluation of the career of the least recognized of the great twentieth century artists. Giacometti's personal life has remained a subject of continuing fascination. In some ways it has acquired emblematic status. Here is the archetypical bohemian artist who after achieving international recognition continues to occupy the same rundown studio in Paris. For Giacometti life and art embodied and expressed a persistent struggle. His was an art of obstruction: of reworking, erasing, decomposing and retrieving."
