Giacometti: Pure Presence This autumn the National Portrait Gallery presents the first major exhibition to cover the aspect of Alberto Giacometti's work. Giacometti: Pure Presence promises to be an unmissable opportunity to enjoy portraiture by the Swiss artist, who is widely regarded as one of the most important and distinctive artists of the 20th century. The show will cover the entire span of his career, with notable paintings, sculptures and drawings within sections devoted to each of his principal models, illuminating his obsession with the human presence.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
