Alberto Giacometti and the Dawn of Post War Sculpture

New York | 14 November

Deputy Chairman of Modern Art, Sharon Kim contemplates Alberto Giacometti’s masterpiece, Trois Hommes Qui Marchent (Grand Plateau), 1962, delving into the process and inspiration behind the work. Conceived in 1948, Trois Hommes Qui Marchent, is not only a seminal piece within Giacometti's body of work, but within Post War art as a whole, and is a visual encapsulation of man emerging from the horrors of the Second World War.

This pivotal work comes from the David M. Solinger Collection and will be one of the highlights of the David M. Solinger Collection Evening Auction in New York on the 14th of November at 5:30 PM EST. Watch the livestream on
