Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966)

From the Giacometti Foundation, Zurich

23 March 2004 - 23 April 2004

The Alberto Giacometti life-work exhibition in the Museum of Fine Arts in actual fact came about with thanks to a fortunate stroke of luck: it was due to the renovations of the Kunsthaus Zurich, to be the final home of the rich collection of the Giacometti Foundation, who lent the representative selection for the duration of their construction. The selection of some sixty artworks from Zurich was further enriched by pieces from numerous private collections and other museums. The fifty-six sculptures, seventeen paintings and fifteen drawings on display rendered the oeuvre of the Swiss-Italian Alberto Giacometti visible in its entirety for the first time in Hungary.
