Co-organized by the Fondation Giacometti in Paris and the Cleveland Museum of Art, Alberto Giacometti: Toward the Ultimate Figure illuminates Alberto Giacometti’s (1901–1966) major achievements of the postwar years (1945–66). During this time, the artist developed his signature style featuring thin, elongated figures animated by vigorously modeled surfaces. Encompassing a range of media—sculpture, painting and drawing—the show includes 60 works, draws on the deep resources of the artist’s personal collection and examines his singular concern for the human form. The touring exhibition makes its national debut in Cleveland. It will also be presented at the Seattle Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City.
