    The Maeght Foundation is a story of family and friendship between Aimé and Marguerite Maeght, visionary art dealers, and their artist friends. The first independent art foundation in France, they conceived it in collaboration with the Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert in 1964. Their artist friends personally participated in its conception and realization, each appropriating a space in the future foundation. Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder and Fernand Léger all found it to be an ideal place of creation, where the rooms and gardens interact in perfect harmony.
    The Fondation Maeght contains one of the biggest 20th-century art collections in Europe.


    Important: The Maeght Foundation is dedicated to art from our era. During the temporary exhibitions, only a part of the permanent collection is on display. Many exhibitions are also organized every year in museums in France and abroad based on the Foundation’s collections.
    The names of the rooms is a tribute to the artists and do not correspond to exposed works.
