Lettres d'Alberto Giacometti à sa famille - L'artiste confirmé 1930-1945

Tax included

The second volume in the collection of Alberto Giacometti's correspondence, co-published with the Giacometti Foundation. 


Throughout his life and career, Alberto Giacometti corresponded with his family. These letters, transcribed in the collection, are an exceptional opportunity to enter the intimate world of the artist, while discovering the artist's intimate world, while discovering remarkable and unpublished details of his creative work. Some photographs and famous or lesser known works famous and lesser-known works of art are interspersed throughout the letters.

His encounter with the Surrealist milieu was decisive for Alberto Giacometti, who made a remarkable breakthrough into the Parisian avant-garde, particularly the Surrealist circles, and met his first collectors. He also created his first decorative objects. Evoking decisive years in the development of his art, of friendships and also of ruptures, in particular during his return to figuration in 1935, which led to his exclusion from André Breton's group, the young artist's letters to his family bear the trace of the questions that inhabited him. The letters from the 1930s bear witness to the many contacts and influences of the Parisian artistic milieu and avant-garde at a time when Alberto Giacometti was becoming an increasingly artistic and creative figure artist.

Scientific editor of the correspondence: Serena Bucalo, curator, Giacometti Foundation
