Today in our art history series we will talk about Alberto Giacometti. He was born in Switzerland on October 10, 1901 and died January 11, 1966. He was a sculptor, painter, draughtsman, and printmaker.

Alberto Giacometti came from an artistic background; his father, Giovanni, was a well-known post-Impressionist painter. Alberto was the eldest of four children and was interested in art from an early age.

We made a great art project inspired in Alberto Giacometti’s sculptures. Click on the picture below to see it:
