Bust of Annette by Alberto Giacometti, 1954.
Annette and Alberto met in Switzerland during the Second World War, and were married a few years later. Along with Giacometti’s brother, Diego, she was his main model until he died in 1966. After his death, she embarked upon a fight against the counterfeiting of her husband’s work.
The square is cut from a NPG leaflet for ‘Giacometti: Pure Presence’, 2015/16.
This is the eighth patch of my ‘London Exhibition Patchwork’. It is a patchwork made from leaflets of exhibitions I have visited in London. There are sixteen squares in total.
