Alberto Giacometti: Collection Fondation Marguerite et Aimé Maeght

The extraordinarily attenuated figures that the Swiss-born Alberto Giacometti is known for bear little resemblance to the human beings that we see around us, but they are the product of the artist’s struggle to represent what he actually did see. In doing so, he provided a visual metaphor for the idea of human beings stretched too thin by the demands of modern life. This more than 135-piece exhibit brings together pieces from the collections of the Fondation Maeght, the Fondation Giacometti, and those of domestic collectors of this seminal figure of modern sculpture.
