Content

In this book, which compares and contrasts the work of two exceptional artists, Giacometti and Auerbach, Edward Lucie-Smith examines the changed but still vital role of portraiture in the art of our time. Both artists portray the same sitters over and over again, trying - so it seems - to catch some elusive essence. The paintings are about as far as you can get from a portrait snapshot. Further still, perhaps, from the kind of flattering, polished likenesses created by professional photographers in their studios. [Klappentext]
