Giacometti comes to the Guggenheim!

Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) was, quite simply, the best. A Surrealist, a figurative artist and an abstractionist, he not only redefined sculpture in the 1940s but he remains one of the great artists of all time. This week, a major retrospective opens at the Guggenheim Museum—and from the looks of the museum's indispensable exhibition catalog, it's sure to be a summer blockbuster. Featured photograph, made in the artist's Maloja, Switzerland, studio, in the mid-1950s, pictures, from left to right, "Head of Diego" (ca. 1914), "Head of Bruno" (ca. 1917), "Head of a Woman (Rita)" (1935), two small "Busts of Silvio" (1943), and "Head of Father (Mask)" (1927).
