Alberto Giacometti

“Woman of Venice VIII”



Giacometti’s representative style of unusually elongated, thin human forms came about after experimenting with many different styles. Removing the texture of human skin and flesh entirely, Giacometti simplifies the form to the limits of figurative sculpture, suggesting relationships between humanity and space, as well as alluding to the struggles of the human condition.
