Alberto Giacometti Derriere Le Miroir Nude Art

Artist Name: Alberto Giacometti

Title: The “Derriere Le Miroir” lithograph featuring a nude by Alberto Giacometti captures a period in the artist’s career characterized by a sense of calmness, subtlety, and compositional stability. Giacometti, a renowned Swiss-born artist, created this artwork during a phase that exuded serenity and tranquility. Despite the overall peacefulness, the loose and fluid lines suggest a rapid execution. Giacometti was known to employ lithographic crayon on transfer paper instead of traditional stone lithography, resulting in works that resembled crayon drawings. This technique preserved every line he made, as erasing lines was not possible with this method.

Description

Giacometti’s studio was located in Paris at 46 rue Hippolyte Maindron, off of the rue d’Alésia. He worked there from 1927 until his death in 1965. This lithograph was created during a period in which Giacometti, Swiss born artist, created works reflecting placidness, understatement, and stability of composition, ultimately giving rise to an atmosphere of serenity. Despite the manifest tranquility, rapid execution is suggested by the ease taken in creating the loose lines. Giacometti was accustomed to drawing with lithographic crayon on transfer paper rather than on stone, a technique that created works which resembled crayon drawing. This technique preserved every line Giacometti put down since this particular method made it impossible to erase lines.

From the May 1961 edition of the French art periodical “Derriere Le Miroir” no. 127 with 14 original lithographs, two doublepage published by Maeght Editeur, Paris in new condition

Alberto Giacometti, a Swiss sculpturer painter and drawer, developed in the 1940s a form of depicition where movement and vision meet.

“I make pictures and sculpture to attack reality, to defend myself against death and to be as free as possible.”
