Bri­tish auc­tion house Christie’s will of­fer a group of pieces by Swiss sculp­tor and de­signer Diego Gi­a­cometti, the son of painter Gio­vanni Gi­a­cometti and brother of the sculp­tor Al­berto Gi­a­cometti. What makes this col­lec­tion spe­cial is that it is be­ing of­fered from the per­sonal col­lec­tion of Hu­bert de Givenchy, a per­sonal friend of the sculp­tor. This ex­cep­tional sale will be pre­ceded by a week-long view­ing that be­gins in Paris on March 6, 2017. In­spired by the only ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to Diego Gi­a­cometti, cu­rated by Daniel Marchesseau in 1986, at the Musée des Arts Dé­co­rat­ifs in Paris, this ex­hi­bi­tion is Hu­bert de Givenchy’s fi­nal trib­ute to his dear friend. Twenty one ob­jects will be show­cased in­clud­ing a pair of mag­nif­i­cent bronze oc­tag­o­nal din­ing ta­bles aux cary­atides made by the artist in 1983 (€`5.80 crore-`8.70 crore each), as well as four bronze stools (`2.17 crore- `3.63 crore) and a third, slightly smaller, oc­tag­o­nal table aux cary­atides (€`4.35 crore-`5.80 crore). A pair of andirons aux deux oiseaux re­alised in brown patina in 1973 (`1 crore-1.45 crore) will also be pre­sented along with a ma­jor white patina lan­tern that hung in the main stair­case of the manor, which pre­ceded the one Gi­a­cometti cre­ated for the Musée Pi­casso (`2.17 crore-` 2.19 crore). A pair of pho­tophores au cerf (`2.90 crore`4.35 crore) com­pletes this se­lec­tion. For more in­for­ma­tion log on to www.christies.com
