TRIBUTE TO ART
A pair of aux deux oiseaux (1973)
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
