Swiss officials have been ordered to seize a collection of drawings by Alberto Giacometti as well as photographs of the artist. The works, which have been at the center of a lengthy ownership dispute, have remained tucked away in a museum’s storage facility for over two years. The Paris-based Alberto and Annette Giacometti Foundation claim that the works were stolen decades ago.
