Paris Post War: Art and Existentialism 1945-55
Monday 26 July 1993
Whatever the case, I feel that his life's work is that quest, a quest that bears not only on man but on the most banal of objects. And when he has succeeded in stripping his chosen object or being of its utilitarian appearances, the image he gives us of it is magnificent. A deserved recompense, yet a predictable one.
From Alberto Giacometti's Studio by Jean Genet, first published by Editions Barbezat, 1958; trans 1991 Charles Penwarden.
