Leo Castelli, original name Leo Krauss, (Trieste 1907, New York 1999), is considered one of the most visionary and talented art dealers in art history, but he didn’t like the definition: he considered himself a gallerist. Castelli was brought up in a wealthy Jewish family in Trieste, that at the time was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. During the World War I the family moved to Wien, and when they moved back to Trieste, it had become part of Italy: that’s when they changed their last name to Castelli, Leo’s mother’s maiden name.
Born in Paris on Christmas day of 1911, Louise Bourgeois is a sculptor known for her monumental and often biomorphic works and installations that deal with childhood memory, identity, and the relationships between human beings.
Her parents owned a gallery that dealt primarily with antique tapestries, and she started drawing as a kid to assist her parents in their restoration business. Her mother died in 1932 while Bourgeois was studying mathematics. Her mother's death inspired her to abandon mathematics and to begin studying art at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, and the studio of Fernand Leger. Also in this period, Bourgeois took a job as a docent, leading tours at the Musèe du Louvre. In 1938, she opened her gallery, where she showed the work of artists such as Henri Matisse and Suzanne Valadon and met visiting American art professor Robert Goldwater. They married, and she moved to New York with him (the marriage would last until Goldwater died in 1973).
Street art has undergone a remarkable evolution in London over the years and has become an integral part of the city's cultural landscape. From its origins as a form of graffiti tagging to its current status as a respected art form, street art in London has come a long way. The earliest examples of street art in London can be traced back to the punk and hip-hop movements of the 1970s and 1980s. Then, graffiti tags and throw-ups were a common sight on the city's walls and buildings, often reflecting the social and political issues of the day.
Alberto Giacometti (1901 – 1966) was a Swiss sculptor, painter, and printmaker. His face has become a sort of “pop” icon, portrayed on the 100 Swiss franc banknotes: His work was particularly influenced by artistic styles such as Cubism and Surrealism. In France, he got involved in Existentialism and Phenomenology through authors such as Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, reflecting on the human condition and the meaning of existence. Around 1935 he gave up on his Surrealist influences to pursue a deepened analysis of figurative compositions.

Fernando Botero Angulo (Medellin, 1932) is a Colombian painter and sculptor known for his volumetric stylization of figures and objects. Self-titled "the most Colombian of Colombian artists," his oeuvre ranges in subject matter such as daily life in Colombia, references to Old Masters, and a critical vision of abuses of power, which the artist depicts with ferocity (as in the “prison” series) or ironically. After years of experimentation and research, he established his unique style known as "Boterismo” and is today Latin America's most recognized and quoted living artist. His large sculptures are placed in apparent locations worldwide, such as Park Avenue in New York and the Champs-Elisees in Paris.
