Buste II (Lust 31). Original lithograph, 1960. 150 singed and numbered impressions on Rives plus c. 1500 unsigned impressions (of which ours is one) published in 1960 in a special number of the deluxe art review Derriere le Miroir. A woman, apparently Giacometti's mistress Caroline, looks directly out at the viewer. Caroline ws a prostitude with whom Giacometti became enthralled. Wanting a part of her that no one else could touch, he purchased the bottom of one of her feet as his exclusive terrain. Lust hypothesizes that this may have been Giacometti's favorite among his lithographs because it was released in the largest signed and numbered edition of any of his prints. Image size: 380x280mm. Price: $850.
Buste (Lust 156). Original lithograph, 1961. 125 singed and numbered impressions plus c. 1500 unsigned impressions (of which ours is one) published in 1961 in a special number of the deluxe art review Derriere le Miroir devoted to Giacometti. A woman, apparently Giacometti's wife Annette, looks off into nowhere. This work was executed shortly after Giacometti began his affair with Caroline. Image size: 380x280mm. Price: $850.
Head of a man / Diego (Lust 155). Original lithograph, 1961. 90 signed and numbered impressions with large margin, of which ours is one. There are also c. 1500 impressions on paper with no margins as published in a 1961 issue of Derrière le Miroir dedicated to Giacometti's work. Giacometti's brother and assistant Diego was also a sculptor, but this is less a portrait than a statement about anxiety and the human condition. Oneof Giacometti's most powerful portraits. Image size: 380x280mm; paper size: 550x378mm (21-5/8x14-7/8 inches). Price: $18,500.
