Art on Sunday: Giacometti, Nose

Alberto Giacometti (1901 – 1966)
Nose, 1947, cast 1965
Bronze, wire, rope, and steel
Giacometti, Nose
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York

I obtained this image from the Guggenheim, but I'm pretty sure I've seen this same sculpture at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. Let me check into this...

[later]

Aha! My memory was correct, as demonstrated here. It looks to me like the Hirshhorn acquired theirs a few years after the Guggenheim. I'll bet that sort of pissed off the Guggenheim people. I mean, it's like they always say: it's not cool to pick someone else's Nose.
