Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
Artistically I am still a child with a whole life ahead of me to discover and create. I want something, but I won't know what it is until I succeed in doing it.

Quotation of Alberto Giacometti

Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
It was always disappointing to see that what I could really master in terms of form boiled down to so little.

Once the object has been constructed, I have a tendency to discover in it, transformed and displaced, images, impressions, facts which have deeply moved me.
Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
Only reality interests me now and I know I could spend the rest of my life in copying a chair.
Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
Taste for things of the past evolves, doesn't it? What was a masterpiece a hundred years ago is no longer so today.
Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
That's the terrible thing: the more one works on a picture, the more impossible it becomes to finish it.
Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
The older I grow, the more I find myself alone.
Quotation of Alberto Giacometti
