In this major new interpretation of Giacometti and his work, art historian and psychoanalyst Laurie Wilson demonstrates how the artist's secret beliefs and emotional scars are reflected in his evocative sculpture, drawings, and paintings. Drawing on biographical data uncovered during a decade of research, Wilson reconstructs traumatic events and issues in Giacometti's life - including family births and deaths in early childhood, world wars and their aftermath, and his intense and ambivalent relationship with his parents - and examines their profound effects on his artistic evolution. These startling new interpretations will forever change the way we understand both the man and his work.
