Giacometti Documentary

Alberto Giacometti(1901-1966) was a painter, printmaker and sculptor. While researching him, I came across two interesting videos. One features Giacometti painting and the other is a five part documentary on him(Un homme parmi les hommes : Alberto Giacometti 10/10/ 1901 – 11/1/ 1966). It’s fascinating to watch his brush strokes.
