Giacometti At The Guggenheim

Impressionistic Inspirations In Metal

For decades, I have been a fan of the works of Twentieth-Century Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966). I find his sculptures to be particularly inspiring. With their exaggerated proportions and rough finish, Giacometti's works offer a wildly impressionistic view of the human form and other familiar shapes and items.

The Guggenheim Museum in New York is hosting an impressive collection of Giacometti's sculptures and drawings through 12 September 2018. If you are planning to be in the New York area over the next couple of months, put the Giacometti exhibition at the top of your must-see list.
