Diego Giacometti was a Swiss designer and sculptor. He is the younger brother and collaborator of Alberto Giacometti. Diego often portrayed animals in bronze with the aesthetic of ancient sculptures or primitive drawings. He created works of importance for decorators such as Georges Geffroyand Henri Samuel, and public works for the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the Chagall Museum in Nice, and the Picasso Museum in Paris.
Alberto Giacometti was born on November 15, 1902 in Borgonova, Switzerland in a small farming village. His father was the painter Giovanni Giacometti, who encouraged all three of his sons to become artists. Diego and his brother Alberto shared a studio in Paris and made work that is sometimes indistinguishable from one another.
He died July 15, 1985 in Paris.
