Research Library and Archives
The Institute hosts a reference research library on modern art
The library is accessible to researchers by reservation and contains a rich collection of documents, making it a reference centre for the modern period (1905-1970), especially in the fields of modern art, sculpture, surrealism, artistic globalisation and cosmopolitanism in Paris.
With a stock of over 3,000 books, it includes the artist's library, consisting of more than 1,200 books, the artist's archives (correspondence, personal documents and photographs), and a research library of modern art, including rare books, regularly enriched by acquisitions of the latest scientific publications.
Access can be granted to researchers from Masters level upwards; applicants should send a request presenting their research project to recherche (at) fondation-giacometti.fr
A portion of Alberto Giacometti's personal library is kept at the Alberto Giacometti-Stiftung in Zurich.
