The WSJ reports that one of Alberto Giacometti’s great sculptures sold for a record price:
I can never look at this fabulous work without being reminded of the even greater photograph Cartier-Bresson took of Giacometti in Paris in pelting rain, picking up skillfully on the sculptor’s thinness theme.
They simply do not make them like that any more. Let’s hope the sculpture went to a good home.
P.S. You do not have to be poor to have good taste ….
