Masterpieces from the Maegh Collection.
Alberto Giacometti, who was born at the beginning of the last century and died in 1966, has been the most quoted sculptor in the global art market for years. He is the pivot around which the next exhibition, curated by Marco Goldin, develops and will take place in the prestigious exhibition spaces of Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona from November 16th 2019 to April 5th 2020.
The exhibition, organised by Linea d'Ombra, was created with the clear intention of paying homage to the great Swiss artist in Italy. It was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Fondazione Aimé e Marguerite Maeght of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, which has loaned over seventy Giacometti works, from the most famous sculptures to drawings and paintings.
"Giacometti's time from Chagall to Kandinsky. Masterpieces from the Maeght Foundation" is a unique opportunity to relive Giacometti's years in Paris, especially the period between the two wars, but not only, with works by Braque, Chagall, Miró, Kandinsky, Derain, Léger, among others. A study on a brilliant figure of twentieth century art that also develops in its relationship with a space, a time and their characters.
The Maeght Foundation, inaugurated in 1964 in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, now has one of the most important collections in Europe of paintings, drawings, sculptures and graphic works of the twentieth century, with names of artists who for decades have been linked to the Maeght family, as Giacometti himself.
