The milestone telling its story in 'Bacon / Giacometti'

Alberto Giacometti's "Grande tête mince" (1954) is reproduced from Hatje Cantz's beautifully produced exhibition Beyeler Foundation catalogue, Bacon / Giacometti. "Filled with doubts and obsessions, enriched by the experience of failure, animated by the same inner violence," Catherine Grenier writes, "Giacometti and Bacon, who were both friends of the writer Leiris, could have recognized themselves equally in an observation of Leiris's, on the subject of Giacometti, but just as applicable to Bacon: 'There are moments of what can be called crisis, the only ones that count in life.… I love Giacometti's sculpture because what he makes is like the petrification of one of these crises, the intensity of a chance event swiftly caught and immediately frozen, the milestone telling its story."
