The Imaginary World of Diego Giacometti @ Sotheby's Paris Galerie Charpentier

Sotheby’s Paris presents The Imaginary World of Diego Giacometti, an exceptional exhibition dedicated to his work. For one week, the Galerie Charpentier will showcase more than 60 works generously loaned by private collectors who were close to the artist, as well as memorabilia and some of the tools he used to create his sculptures. The exhibition will give an overview of the sculptor's singular creative talent, imbued with his poetic imagination. In the 1960s, he began designing chairs, tables, consoles and lamps where animals including frogs, mice, deer, foxes, dogs, cats and ostriches scurry, gambol and observe each other. The event will bring the artist's bestiary to life in Paris during an exhibition that includes previously unseen pieces, now unveiled to the public for the first time. The Imaginary World Of Diego Giacometti will be on view until January 31, 2017 at Galerie Charpentier, 76, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré
