This lavishly illustrated book accompanies a major retrospective of Giacometti's work at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh. The two hundred and forty-one works in the.

Exhibition include many of Giacometti's greatest and best-known pieces, as well as rarely-seen Surrealist sculptures and previously unrecorded works. All are reproduced - eighty as full page colour plates. The fully illustrated essays, written by some of the world's leading Giacometti scholars, bring together remarkable new research and make this book an invaluable introduction to the artist's life and work.
