Introducing the remarkable early works of Swiss artist Giacometti, whose unique style blends elements of Surrealism and Cubism. In 1947, he embarked on a new artistic direction, focusing on expressionist sculpture that would become synonymous with his name. His signature figures are characterized by their extraordinary thinness and elongation, appearing as delicate wisps of the human form. Giacometti's sculptures exude a sense of ethereal beauty and transcendence. These skeletal figures, devoid of mass and volume, seem weightless and detached from the physical world. With their elongated proportions and oversized feet, they possess an otherworldly quality that captivates the viewer. The artist applies matte shades of gray and beige, often accented with subtle hints of pink or blue, over the rich brown patina of the metal, further enhancing the evocative nature of his work. In particular, the sculpture "Three Men Walking (II)" showcases Giacometti's distinct technique and vision. The heavily worked surfaces, eroded and rough, reveal the artist's meticulous attention to detail. These reduced figures, stripped down to their essence, evoke the image of bare trees in winter, standing solitary without foliage. Giacometti's focus on the walking man, standing nude woman, and the bust demonstrates his unwavering commitment to these enduring themes, often combined in various groupings to explore their profound and enigmatic meanings.
