Annette

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.

You can see the whole piece here and in my shop, or you can follow my progress on Instagram, if you are so inclined.
