Better known as the sculptor of wiry figures, our compatriot Alberto Giacometti  was also a great painter and draughtsman. Drawing was at the heart of his approach. Very early on, he declared: "What needs to be said, what I believe, is that whether it's sculpture or painting, it's only the drawing that counts [...], for me at least, everything is only drawing."

Les Belles Heures de l'Université de Montréal invites you to discover this great figure of 20th-century art during two online lectures given by art historian Amel Ferhat on September 18 and 25, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm (EST).

Dates: Monday September 18 and Monday September 25
