The Fondation Giacometti supports significant contributions in the field of the history of modern art
The Fondation Giacometti in Paris offers a programme of research into the history of modern art: the École des Modernités (School of Modernities). The aim of this programme is to support original projects for the study of the art of the modern period (1905-1960).
Within the framework of this programme, the Fondation Giacometti gives its support to unpublished research into the modern period by providing access to its research centre, funding for a study grant and support for publishing in the form of a literature collection. The cosmopolitan modern movement in Paris is one of the focal points of this programme.
