While maintaining their distance from the academic representation of the body and the illusionistic figurative tradition, Giacometti, Marini and Richier gave thought to new methods of figuration, to express and convey their view of the human being.
The Swiss citizen Alberto Giacometti, the Italian Marino Marini and the Frenchwoman Germaine Richier started their academic training in their respective countries before being attracted – like many artists – to Paris. In the interwar period it still retained its status as a global intellectual and artistic capital.
