Lot Essay

Cette table, probablement pièce unique, est le tout premier meuble que Monsieur de Givenchy commande à Diego Giacometti, pour sa maison à Loges-en-Josas. Le motif décoratif sera le cerf, emblème de Saint Hubert. Diego utilise alors des brindilles pour façonner les bois. C'est la première fois qu'il représente ce motif.

This table, probably a one-off piece, is the very first piece of furniture that Monsieur de Givenchy commissioned from Diego Giacometti, for his country house in Loges-en-Josas. The decorative motif would be the stag, symbol of Saint Hubert. For his plaster model, Diego used twigs to make the antlers. This was the first time that he depicted this motif.
