About the exhibition: Giacometti – Face to Face
Alberto Giacometti lived his entire life in his studio
Giacometti’s studio on 46 rue Hippolyte Maindron in Montparnasse is fabled. He moved there in 1925 and came to stay there until his death. For 40 years, the studio constituted a defined universe where the artist not only worked but also lived, though he could have with time and growing success lived much more comfortably.
In a space of only 23 square metres sculptures in various stages, sketches, personal objects, drawings and paintings mingled with food scraps and old cigarette butts. Visitors have spoken of how both the artists and the objects seemed as though they were wrapped in a grey film of dust. This was also where his models sat for him. He has portrayed the experience in the book “The Studio of Alberto Giacometti”, 1958.
