Swiss Artist Giacometti’s Studio Brought to Life in Art Deco Paris Mansion

It is a vision come true. Alberto Giacometti’s studio, an extension of the artist himself, has been meticulously reconstructed inside the newly opened Giacometti Institute in Paris. Here, one discovers fragile artworks in plaster and clay (some of which have never been shown to the public), furniture and the renowned murals painted by the artist, conserved in their entirety by his widow, Annette Giacometti. Fifty years after his death, the invaluable heritage is now accessible to the public alongside 350 sculptures, 90 paintings, over 2000 drawings and decorative art objects.

Located on Rue Schoelcher in the Montparnasse neighbourhood in what was then decorator Paul Follot’s private mansion and studio, the Giacometti Foundation now houses the biggest collection of the Swiss artist’s work in the world. Read More via Wallpaper.
