Review by:
Ellen Handler Spitz

But I've never made the same objects as those I see with my eyes

(Giacometti, 1955, quoted by Wilson, p. 293).

Generations of spectators have gawked at Alberto Giacometti's emaciated, attenuated, corrugated, uncannily spectral sculptures of human beings and wondered why and how the artist made them and what he meant by them. This book offers psychoanalytic answers to their questions. Meriting welcome from those interested in Giacometti and his oeuvre and from those invested in the larger enterprise in which it partakes, namely, the forging of collaborative ties between psychoanalysis and the arts, this volume constitutes an exemplary addition to the book list of the publishers of the Psychoanalytic Study of the Child.
