The Studio in Stampa, c. 1957
LʼAtelier à Stampa

In the last years of his life, Giacometti worked quite often in the studio he had taken over from his father in Stampa; it was here that the ‘Bustes de Chiavenna’ were created. In the background to the right can be seen an early sculpture, probably a head of the father from 1927, standing on the sideboard.
