Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti, each in their own way, deeply disrupted existing artistic codes and pushed the barriers of established aesthetic canons. This tome reveals the dialogue, largely unexplored until now, between the artists on the subjects and questions central to their work. The two legendary twentieth-century artists shared a vast network of acquaintances and sources of inspiration, which are mapped out in a constellation diagram. More than one hundred full-page reproductions of their works establish clear correlations in their artistic production, and expert authors offer incisive insight on these links, drawing on previously unpublished documents. An anthology of historical texts offers the perspective of the master artists' contemporaries. This volume reproduces the principal works and text from the Picasso-Giacometti exhibition held at the Musee Picasso in Paris from October 4, 2016 to-February 5, 2017, produced in conjunction with the Musee Picasso and the Fondation Giacometti and traveling to Qatar in spring 2017.
