A unique Alberto Giacometti collection in the mountain hotel. An exhibition of the printmaking work (lithographs and etchings) of the world-renowned Bergeller artist with a total of more than 200 exhibits.

Description

The public collection of hotelier Carlos Gross at Pensiun Aldier inSent has been collected all over the world in over 25 years and is the result of years of meticulous research and a great passion. It is one of the most complex public exhibitions of its kind and offers a deep and thorough insight into the graphic work of the artist. It also features unpublished and little-known works by Alberto Giacometti.

Since 2017, new works and the collection of artist books (Livres d'artistes) have been added.

Some bronze sculptures by his brother and talented artist Diego Giacometti, working in the background, are also on display. He was Alberto's most important model and his assistant in the Parisian years. Gross also maintained a long-standing friendship with photographer Ernst Scheidegger, who was a close friend of Giacometti. Together, Gross and Scheidegger have built up a photo collection over more than ten years, which can also be seen in the hotel. All prints were made especially for this collection and are signed by Scheidegger. Great contemporary witnesses in black and white.
