Maeght Foundation – Saint-Paul-de-Vence

Maeght Foundation - Saint-Paul-de-Vence

A unique example of a private foundation in Europe.

The Marguerite and Aimé Maeght foundation is a unique example of a private foundation in Europe. It was inaugurated on 28 July 1964 by André Malraux, then Minister of Cultural Affairs. This architectural ensemble was entirely designed and financed by Aimé and Marguerite Maeght to present modern and contemporary art in all its forms.

A real museum in nature, the Maeght Foundation is an exceptional place with one of the most important collections in Europe of paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works of 20th century modern art (Bonnard, Braque, Calder, Chagall, Chillida, Giacometti, Léger, Miró, Ubac) but also contemporary artists (Adami, Calzolari, Caro, Del Re, Dietman, Kelly, Mitchell, Monory, Oh Sufan, Takis, Tàpies, etc.).

The Maeght foundation in St Paul de Vence regularly holds exhibitions.
