From the Blurb: One of the great masters of 20th century art, the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti captured the existential loneliness of modern humanity with his spindly, attenuated figures whose life-like gazes pierce the vastness of space. Uniting more than 250 sculptures, paintings, drawings and graphic works, this extensive monograph is an exemplary overview of his oeuvre. The book underscores the continuity between the two remarkable bodies of work that characterize his career: the pre-1935 works, which included the finest of all Surrealist sculptures, and the post-war masterpieces. As a result of a profound artistic crisis that began in 1934, when Giacometti returned to working from the model and thus broke with the Surrealists, the artist began tackling the problem of situating figures in space in an entirely new way. Painting played a key role in the solutions that Giacometti found to this problem, and the discussion here of the relationship between his two- and three- dimensional works reveals him to have been as great a painter as he was a sculptor

Volume 2 covers the most important stages in sculpture from the Renaissance to the present day. As the transition from the Middle Ages to the early Modern age, the Renaissance marks a turning point in art against the backdrop of a new way of viewing humanity. The new Humanist ideals are most convincingly expressed in the work of such distinguished sculptors as Donatello and Michelangelo. Baroque sculture, with Bernini usually regarded as its leading exponent, represents a new freedom of artistic expression. The monumentality and pathos of the Baroque yielded in the Rococo period to sculpture that is at once appealing and elegant. European monarchs vied with one another in attempts at outdoing the grandeur of Versailles. From the 15th to the 18th centuries, sculpture was primarily part of the overall artistic synthesis of palaces, parks, gardens, and churches, but with the French Revolution, it made its ways into the cities to serve the purposes of urban architecture. In the 20th century the conception of art was redefined with unprecedented implications and repercussions. Styles ranged from Expressionism through Futurism to Constructivism and Surrealism, as exemplified by Picasso and Matisse, Brancusi and Giacometti. The 1950s saw works by Alexander Calder and henry Moore shaping pulic spaces, while the close of the century was dominated by artists like Joseph Beuys and Jeff Koons. Today, a generation of young artists is sparking off a dizzying array of new developments. (Publisher) present day.
