Painting Of Diego by his brother Alberto.
His true talent lay in the correctness of proportions… Diego who went to neither museums nor gallery exhibitions, hit upon antique, eternal forms by instinct, conferring on them a new nobility. His forms are not reminiscences of the past, as some have supposed, these are original creations, occasionally inspired by chance.
(Daniel Marchesseau, Diego Giacometti, New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1986, P.65)
