Bilingual Exhibition Catalogue Giacometti and Ancient Egypt, presented at The Giacometti Foundation, Paris (June 22 - October 10, 2021).

This exhibition catalogue proposes a thematic journey that places some of Giacometti’s emblematic works in dialogue with exceptional pieces on loan from the Louvre museum.

The reader is invited to extend and deepen that relation of the sculptor with Egyptian art. From previously unseen research on the sources used by the artist, the catalogue offers a thematic journey made of dialogues between Giacometti’s works and Egyptian figures, among them that of the scribe, the art of the Amarna period and the Fayum portraits.

By confronting sculptures, paintings and many drawings not shown before with a selection of art works from the Louvre’s collections, the book offers a renewed way of looking at Giacometti’s art through the prism of Ancient Egypt, a source for Modern art that still remains to be explored.
