Best known for his achievements in sculpture and painting, Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) was also an accomplished printmaker. In 1957 he began an epic series of 150 lithographs of his beloved Paris, where he had lived since 1922. The lithographs were intended for a deluxe artist’s book Paris sans fin (Paris Forever) that would be published by Tériade, one of the great innovators of the artist book in the modern era.
With their numerous exhibitions and community programs, both the de Young and the Legion of Honor rely greatly on the Fine Arts Museums' Volunteer Council, a vital 300+ member organization that provides visitor services and staff support seven days a week.

They enable the conservation of FAMSF’s collections, and inspire capital projects which support asset-building needs. Major gifts come in many forms and can be made through cash contributions, gifts of appreciated securities, bequests and planned gifts, or in-kind gifts such as contributions of valuable art.
