Alberto Giacometti is widely regarded as one of the most important and distinctive artists of the 20th century. This major exhibition is the first to focus on his portraiture and includes over sixty paintings, sculptures and drawings from international public and private collections.

Throughout his career Giacometti was fascinated by the artistic complexities of evoking a human presence. His portraits are characterised by an intense scrutiny of his models, during which he endeavoured to record his constantly changing perceptions. The resulting images are among Giacometti’s most enigmatic and personal, central to his reputation as one of the giants of modern art.
