Alberto Giacometti has always been fascinated by the art works of Ancient Egypt, which he drew throughout his career. This inspiration drawn from Egyptian art is regularly presented in his sculpture and painting, both as a repertoire of forms and an essential element of his aesthetic concept.

Exhibition Catalogue Alberto Giacometti and Ancient Egypt, presented at Fondation Giacometti, Paris (22 juin - 10 octobre 2021).
By confronting sculptures, paintings and many drawings not shown before with a selection of art works from the Louvre’s collections, this catalogue proposes 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.
