Giacometti / Fondation Beyeler The summer exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen near Basel, Switzerland, is devoted to the Swiss sculptor, painter and draftsman Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966). During his Paris years, Alberto Giacometti became one of the most influential protagonists of modern art. He is best known for his seemingly fragile figures in which the human form is reduced to the essentials. On display are about 150 major works from every phase of Alberto Giacometti's career. In addition, the exhibition includes works by other artistically active members of the Giacometti family: Giacometti's father, Giovanni, his brother, Diego, and his uncle, Augusto. On view are sculptures, paintings, drawings, and design objects from the family holdings, private collections, and renowned museums around the world. [Heinrich Schmidt]
