Jean Genet — The Studio of Giacometti

Out of Stock

“Jean Genet and Alberto Giacometti became friends in the 1950’s, and Genet later posed for several paintings and drawings by the artist. After having observed Giacometti at work from such close proximity, Genet’s wrote an essay about the experience, L’Atelier d’Alberto Giacometti – which is printed here in a new English translation with illustrations by Marc Camille Chaimowicz.”
