Alberto Giacometti

(1901 - 1966)

Swiss painter, sculptor, and printmaker, 1901-1966

Note: Giacometti was a Swiss artist who is best known for his lanky sculptures of solitary figures. At a young age it became apparent he was extremely adept in the fine arts. Encouragement from his father, Giovanni and his godfather, Cuno Amiet (both painters) lead him to pursue an artistic career. Between 1922 and 1925, Giacometti studied at the Académie de la Grande-Chaumiére in Paris. His brother Diego was a furniture designer as well as Giacometti's model and studio assistant; his brother Bruno was an architect.
