Giacometti’s early creations such “Head of a Woman” (1926) will be exhibited alongside later works such as “Walking Man” (1960).

Giacometti, a celebrated sculptor, painter and draughtsman is well known for his distinctive elongated bronze sculptures, but this exhibition is also showcasing the artist’s wider accomplishments in textures such as plaster, clay and paint.

Rarely seen plasters, drawings and even some of the artist’s sketch books are now being shown in the UK for the first time.
