Synopsis: Winner of a Venice Bienniale Golden Lion Award, Looking at Giacometti is a compelling mixture of biography and criticism, including an extraordinary interview with Giacometti.
Written over a period of forty years, Looking at Giacometti is a profound response to the art of one of modernism’s greatest sculptors. It takes students from world-renowned art critic David Sylvester’s first visits to Giacometti’s studio in the late 1940s to the author’s prolonged sitting for the artist’s portrait of him in the 1960 and reflections on his complete oeuvre after Giacometti’s death. A compelling mixture of biography and criticism, and including a sixteen-page insert of black and white photographs by Patricia Matisse, this book sheds new light on twentieth-century art and thought.
About the Author:
David Sylvester is an art critic especially renowned for his writings on Francis Bacon’s work beginning in the late 1940s. They soon became close friends and over the next forty years, he became Bacon’s Boswell: interpreter, confidant, occasional model, and sometimes agent. His many books include Interviews with Francis Bacon and About Modern Art: Critical Essays 1948-97.
