Diego Giacometti’s Monumental Library

New York | May 2017

Intricate and grand in scale, Diego Giacometti’s corner library illustrates his creativity and deep understanding of material. Commissioned by renowned French publisher Marc Barbezat, the bookcase library is clad in gold-patinated bronze and adorned with Giacometti’s trademark trees and birds. This extraordinary piece is at once robust and delicate, monumental and intimate, functional and sculptural. Ahead of Sotheby's Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale on 16 May 2017 in New York.
