Celebrated as a sculptor, painter and draughtsman, Alberto Giacometti’s distinctive elongated figures are some of the most instantly recognisable works of modern art. A new exhibition at Tate Modern reasserts Giacometti’s place alongside the likes of Matisse, Picasso and Degas as one of the great painter-sculptors of the twentieth century. Here curator and Director of Tate Modern, Frances Morris highlights three key works in the exhibition.

Giacometti is on at Tate Modern 10 May – 10 September 2017.
