The Late Work (1960—1966)

Département des Alpes Maritimes

This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition Alberto Giacometti: The Late Work at the Galerie Lympia, cultural centre of the Département des Alpes-Maritimes – Nice from 23 June to 15 October 2017. The Département des Alpes-Maritimes presents the first exhibition dedicated to Alberto Giacometti to be shown in Nice. Conceived specifically for the brand-new Galerie Lympia, this exhibition does not aim to offer a summary of his oeuvre, but instead a singular gaze at a little-known part, the late period, that of maturity, from 1960 until the artist’s death in 1965. Conceived around his last models, his wife Annette, brother Diego, friend Caroline and the photographer Eli Lotar, with whom he was close, the exhibition design proposes to throw a spotlight on Alberto Giacometti’s work from a unique perspective, in the privacy of his studio in the Rue Hippolyte-Maindron, in the Paris neighbourhood of Montparnasse, or in his room in the Hôtel de Rive in Geneva, thereby reflecting the artist’s living and creative space.
