"What I’m saying in this show actually contradicts what Giacometti said about himself... From the word go, age 13 when he started making art, right through to his death, Giacometti had an unbroken relationship with portraiture."

With a week to go until Giacometti: Pure Presence opens, curator Paul Moorhouse speaks to Christie's about staging the exhibition and uncovering the artist's 'double life'.
