Diego Giacometti is born in Borgonovo, in Switzerland in 1902, a small village near Italian frontiers. Son of Giovanni Giacometti and brother of Alberto Giacometti, he grew in a protected atmosphere surrounded by his family. After graduation in Basel and Saint-Gall, he joins his brother Albert in Paris. Alberto Giacometti is at the time apprentice of Antoine Bourdelle at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Giacometti brothers turn themselves towards plastic arts: Alberto and Diego to painting and sculptures, Bruno towards architecture. He specializes in wildlife art and represents animals symbolizing the beauty, the strength, the power with lion heads, wolves or horses. He uses bronze, that permits him to work with precision, thanks to its elasticity. His tapestry - made by Art Surface - the same inspiration than his furniture. After the Alberto’s death in 1966, Diego works harder and get commissioned by famous decorators such as Georges Geffroy, Henri Samuel and commissioned to make furniture in exceptional public spaces such as the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul de Vence, the Musée Marc Chagall in Nice, or the Musée Picasso exceptional commission showcased at Hotel Salé, in Paris. Diego became famous after Alberto’s death. In an article from Le Figaro, dating from September 13, 2017, Patrick Grainville comments this late notoriety: ‘’It’s the Adam of an eden of familiar animals, of plants fantasia that he sculpts and we never entirely know his poetry after the death of the firstborn’’.
