I'm Michael and this is what can be loosely defined as a blog.
Annette (1961) - Alberto Giacometti

Giacometti’s portraits, be they painted or sculpted, are the translation of the model as an implacable otherness, which can never be grasped in its entirety. These portraits, devoid of all emotion and expression, are the receptacle of what the spectator brings to them. What was involved for the artist was capturing and rendering the vibration of the life of his models and not their psychology. 
His favourite models were people who lived around him: his wife Annette, whom he married in 1949, and Diego, his brother and assistant, who acted as a medium for his most advanced research. Working from memory, he brought forth their image within an imaginary space.
