item code: g1036

Grey t-shirt featuring an image of Alberto Giacometti’s celebrated sculpture The Dog 1951. Produced in the UK to accompany the Giacometti retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern.

Although it possesses a strong resemblance to a Saluki hound, Giacometti told his biographer, James Lord, that his dog was actually a form of self-portrait. ‘One day I was walking along the rue de Vanves in the rain, close to the walls of the buildings, with my head down, feeling a little sad, perhaps, and I felt like a dog just then. So I made that sculpture. But it’s not really a likeness at all.’
