Note Published on the occasion of the exhibition Bacon-Giacometti held at Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland, April 29-September 2, 2018.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary "Bacon and Giacometti both take the human figure as their main point of artistic reference. Both occupy themselves with the fragmented and deformed body. Moreover, they devote themselves to portraiture and the depiction of human individuality in an almost obsessive manner... The exhibition comprises 100 paintings and sculptures from major museums and private collections in Europe and the USA."-- Fondation Beyeler exhibition webpage.
