This bronze dog represents the artist who made it. Guess who!


Here are some clues:

  1. He joined Andre Breton's Surrealist movement in 1931; he was ousted in 1935.

  2. He was Swiss.

  3. He said, “One day I was walking along the rue de Vanves in the rain, close to the walls of the buildings, with my head down, feeling a little sad, perhaps, and I felt like a dog just then."





Answer: Alberto Giacometti, Dog, bronze, 1951.
