Per la stagione estiva il Museo Picasso di Parigi presenta una bella mostra su Diego Giacometti, dal 17 Maggio al 4 Novembre.

The  exhibition  « Diego  Giacometti  at  the  musée Picasso »  explores  the  genesis  of  the  exceptional commission  assigned  to  Diego  Giacometti  for  the Musée national Picasso-Paris on the occasion of its opening in October 1985.  

This remarkable set of 50 pieces, consisting of chairs, benches, lamps  and  tables,  exclusively  created  for  the  hotel   Salé, represents the climax of Diego Giacometti’s work by executing its last commission before his death in July 1985.  “Artisan-poet” according  to  the  expression  of  Jean  Leymarie,  Diego Giacometti offers in this furniture a range of different facets of his universe: the taste for nature and plants, the reading of the ancient sources, Greeks and Etruscan, the aspiration of creating a  real  “geometry  in  the  air”.  The  bronze  and  resin furniture, nowadays  inseparable  of  the  hotel  Salé’s  decoration will  be dialoguing with the original plasters created by the artist. The presentation of his artist's studio collection, acc ompanied by a selection  of  previously  unseen  photographs  and  archives  will allow situating this commission in its own context of creation.     

The exhibition will also present the new benches de signed for the Musée national Picasso-Paris in the framework of a partnership with ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Laus anne and the Tectona society.
