Those really are beautiful. I'm quite interested, however, in Frank's use of colour, especially after he met Schiaparelli. I came across a wonderful photograph (black and white, alas) showing two sinuous Giacometti urns which are described as being "pale pink plaster."

AL - As I recall there was a pink plaster urn/light in the V&A Surrealism exhibition. It was a jarring bluish light pink. It may well be in the book that accompanied the show.
