Alberto Giacometti's austere figures and portraits speak to human existence in a post-war era defined by alienation and uncertainty. Fascinated by the practice of representing the same sitter again and again to reveal the constant variability of a single person, Giacometti often took his wife, his mother, and his brother as subjects. In the series of 12 prints from which this work originates, the artist illustrates the Dada writer and editor Iliazd (Ilia Zdanevich), who was known as the architect, designer, and publisher of illustrated books of the School of Paris.
