Talking and philosophizing about art and life

"Love for art can be as multi-faceted as love for life." Iso Camartin

By chance, Renato Bergamin met two grand seigneurs of the 20th century art scene, art dealer Eberhard W. Kornfeld and photographer Ernst Scheidegger, both personal friends of Alberto Giacometti. They gave him unparalleled impressions about the dimensions and the atmosphere of an amazing and thrilling cultural era.

With an excerpt of James Lord's diary about his first visit to Giacometti's studio in 1952.
