About This DVD
The son of a painter, Alberto Giacometti was born in 1901 in Italian-speaking Switzerland. At 18, he left school to find himself. Soon after, he announced that he would devote his life to art. Though he is often identified as an Existentialist, Giacometti was initially involved with the Surrealist movement, from which he was formally expelled in the 1930's.

In the mid-1940's, he began a new phase of sculpting in which his statues became stretched out, their limbs elongated. When these unique and startling statues were exhibited in New York in 1948, they immediately became icons of 20th century art. His concept of depicting the emptiness around an object had a revolutionary influence on post-modern art. Also, his reduction of the human form to it's essential elements heralded Minimalism, one of the 20th century's most fruitful movements.

Includes spectacular images of his greatest work.
