Giacometti: Final Portrait

Final Portrait
Alberto Giacometti, 1965

Having debuted at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2017, director Stanley Tucci’s biopic of Alberto Giacometti, “Final Portrait,” is now on wide release. The film stars Geoffrey Rush in the title role.

In other news, Giacometti’s studio is “returning to Montparnasse in Paris, more than half a century after the Swiss artist died and left the tiny space packed with sculptures and drawings. His original studio at rue Hippolyte-Maindron no longer exists, but the Giacometti Fondation is painstakingly recreating the space as he left it in 1966 as the centerpiece of the new Giacometti Institute, which is due to open on June 21 in an historic building in the same neighborhood.” (Artnet)
