Louisiana poster with the work, Homme qui Marche - Walking Man (1960), by the Swiss artist, Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966). Giacometti is a major figure in Louisiana and his Walking Man is perhaps the artist's most iconic work in Louisiana's collection.

Alberto Giacometti belongs to the artists who have influenced the art of the 20th century. Louisiana's collection of Giacometti figures is large, also internationally, and it is probably not least the interaction between Giacometti's figures and the museum's architecture that seems so special—and recognizable—to many of the museum's guests.

Giacometti's vision is characterized by a deep feeling for the basic human conditions – the isolation and loneliness of each being. His works open up when you make time for it, and at Louisiana, Giacometti's sculptures almost become a commentary on the museum visit itself—they are, after all, a kind of people in the rooms.

In both Giacometti's many busts and in the fully developed figures, it is the face that counts. The body is there, but it is not the main thing. It's the head. The gaze. As if the situation has been reversed and it is the sculptures that are looking at us.
