Giacometti is perhaps my favourite artist. His work strives to demonstrate the changing nature of identity and the human face. Sartre called it 'pure presence'. The only thing I would change about the National Portrait Gallery exhibition is the absence of his rough plaster works.

The exhibition shows evolution of Giacometti's style from his earliest childhood sculptures, and work as a very young man which was more literal, to his more mature and confident works with paint and bronze.

The exhibition is on until the 10th of January at the National Portrait Gallery.
