Summary "Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti, each in their own way, deeply disrupted existing artistic codes and pushed the limits of established aesthetic canons in the realms of painting and sculpture. This volume reveals the little known relationship--both artistic and personal--between the artists and their dialogue on the subjects and questions central to their work. More than one hundred reproductions of Picasso and Giacometti's works establish clear correlations in their artistic production, and expert authors offer incisive insight on these links, drawing on previously unpublished documents. A constellation diagram maps out the vast network of their shared acquaintances and sources of inspiration, and an anthology of historical texts offers perspective from contemporaries of the master artists"-- Page [4] of jacket.
