Catalogue Note

Giacometti’s sculptures were photographed by Man Ray for publication in Cahiers d’Art in 1932, and at the same sitting a series of portraits was made, including the present solarised example (lot 9). In gratitude Giacometti gave Man Ray a number of his own works, such as the plaster sculpture Femme angoissée dans une chambre la nuit, captured in the present self-portrait.
