Pure Presence


Known for his significant contribution to the world of sculpture, Alberto Giacometti’s work in painting is also of importance. In a show titled Pure Presence at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Giacometti’s sculpture pieces are coupled with his oil paintings to provide for a more in-depth understanding of the progress of the artist’s work. This show highlights the influence of Giacometti’s personal life on his artistic career. Be sure not to miss this exhibition as it closes in early January!
