Pure Presence

Published to accompany the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition, ‘Giacometti: Pure Presence’, this catalogue explores the development of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. The book focuses on Alberto Giacometti’s engagement with evoking a human presence and his relationship with his main sitters in order to provide a new perspective on his distinctive depiction of the figure. Grade’s discreet and tasteful presentation of the content allows the work of this most emotive artist the space and contemplation it demands.
