Augusto Giacometti (1877-1947) is one of the outstanding Swiss painters in the succession of Art Nouveau and Symbolism and is considered a pioneer of abstraction. The abstract pastels created from 1899 onwards and the non-figurative paintings - the Chromatic Fantasies from 1910 to 1917 - earned Giacometti the reputation of a "pioneer of abstract painting" after his death.

This catalogue raisonné of Augusto Giacometti's approximately 560 paintings, murals, mosaics and glass paintings, meticulously compiled by the Schweizerische Institut für Kunstwissenschaft SIK-ISEA, is presented in two richly illustrated volumes. The individual works are annotated and documented in detail in a scholarly apparatus on the technical and reception history.

Essays examine Giacometti's position in the context of cultural history as well as questions about his commissioned art and his role as a cultural politician. Other contributions focus on the artist's colour-theoretical considerations in the context of contemporary doctrines and practice as well as on questions of conservation. Finally, the historical attempts to categorise Augusto Giacometti as an artist are critically examined from various perspectives.
