Picasso and Giacometti

Final Portrait
Alberto Giacometti, 1965

Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti will be the subjects of a new museum opening in Beijing in 2020. Paris’s National Picasso Museum and the Giacometti Foundation are teaming up to manage the new institution for at least the first five years, from June 2020 through June 2025. (After that, they may extend the partnership or hand the museum over to Chinese management.) The institution will present up to four exhibitions each year. These two are just an example of the many artists photographed by Karsh. Explore our Selected Archive for more or search all the sittings for a particular person.
