8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) is likely to be remembered as the most eminent sculptor of the twentieth century. During his lifetime, his spiritual tenacity and intellectual perception were legendary. After his death, it became apparent - as James Lord persuasively demonstrated in Giacometti: A Biography - that Giacometti's most heroic triumphs lay in the modest and arduous achievements of meta-physical insight." "Giacometti has come to be considered a classic study of the creative life. It delves deeply into the matrix of genius but at the same time deliberately veils the mythological origins of Geacometti's achievement. Lord reveals the secret source of Giacometti's destiny - family legend, childhood memories, illnesses and injuries, crucial sexual encounters, intimations of morality - all of which mark him, in Lord's view, as a direct descendent of mythological heroes: Prometheus, Daedalus, Hercules, Ulysses, Oedipus."--Jacket

James Lord first arrived in Paris toward the end of World War II, a brash but insignificant young man bent on achieving distinction. His immediate priority was nothing less than to make the acquaintance of the greatest artist of our century: Pablo Picasso. How he managed to do this, to persuade the artist to draw not one but two portraits of him, and to become a welcome visitor to Picasso's studio is only the beginning of this haunting and memorable narrative by one of the most gifted and discerning chroniclers of modern art
