Subject matter
Giacometti most famously created series of elongated, textured figural sculptures. Always quietly anonymous, the figures are striking in their unusual stance. This print focuses only on the bust of an unidentified man. The guide lines on the head, used to create a proportional face, are left as part of the final product. The process becomes an essential part of the face itself.
