Alberto Giacometti (1901–66) is one of the most significant sculptors of the twentieth century, internationally acclaimed for his unique style and innovative vision. Part of the Tate Introductions series, this richly illustrated and accessible book provides an engaging and concise account of Giacometti’s work and life. It explores the story of the artist’s evolution, from his first sketchbooks and professional works of art through his extraordinary surrealist compositions, to the emergence of his mature style.

Lena Fritsch is an art historian, currently working at Tate Modern as Assistant Curator, International art. She is co- curator of the exhibition Alberto Giacometti at Tate Modern and co-editor of the accompanying catalogue, Giacometti (2017).
