Kunsthaus Zürich

Alberto Giacometti
Drawings and Watercolours

28 February – 25 May 2014

With the Bruno Giacometti bequest of 2012 to the Kunsthaus Zürich came a group of works covering the entire career of Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966), from the early years in Stampa to his Paris period, which has long held special meaning for the Giacometti family. It includes copies of works by Dürer, Mantegna, Holbein and Hodler made by a precocious Giacometti between the ages of 12 and 15. They were followed in the 1920s by studies of Romanesque and Egyptian sculptures, while in the 1930s he began to engage with the work of Matisse, Cézanne and Rodin, though producing creations that were very much his own. The selection also shows important images of family members and various self-portraits, as well as landscapes from around Stampa and Maloja, studio views, and masterly figure studies from the 1950s and 1960s.

With support of the
Dr. Georg and Josi Guggenheim Foundation.
