9780810909991: Alberto Giacometti
From Publishers Weekly:

Matter spent five years photographing Giacometti's studio in Paris. The sculptor considered the results "by far the most beautiful photographs" ever taken of his work, and he claimed that they taught him new things about his sculpture. Reproduced here, these remarkable pictures, themselves works of art, bring us closer to Giacometti's gaunt, groping figures and allow them to speak authentically. We experience their sheer, frontal directness and their relation to the vast spaces that surround them. We feel their hope, joy, anguish and solitude. This outstanding volume, a must for collectors, includes a perceptive essay by painter Mercedes Matter, the photographer's widow. Her theme is how Giacometti used the ancient materials of clay and paint to fashion an extreme, contemporary self-awareness.

From Library Journal:

This is a large and beautiful book of photographs on the Swiss-born sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti by photographer Herbert Matter. Giacometti's handsome, lined face; his parents' house in Switzerland; busts of his brother Diego; the hollow, corroded faces of his standing figures; his paintings; and his studio are the content. The book repeatedly shows the same work or scene and omits many of Giacometti's sculptures; the artist's works are covered more comprehensively in other books. A brief text on Giacometti's life by the photographer's wife, Mercedes Matter, follows the many pages of photos. For extensive modern art libraries, the book is recommended for capturing the physical essence of a landmark artist's life and work.Hara Seltzer, NYPL
