EXHIBITION "THE SPIRIT OF A COLLECTION: DONATIONS"
From 1 December 2018 to 16 June 2019
At the Maeght Foundation
The Maeght Foundation is hosting a new exhibition of selected works from its own collection. Curated by art critic Henri-François Debailleux, the event will run from 1 December 2018 to 16 June 2019. The Foundation has amassed a wealth of exquisite works over the years, first and foremost thanks to donations by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and subsequently to gifts from artists, friends, family members, collectors and supporters of the Foundation. It is this very mind-set of generosity and caring that will be spot-lit, until the spring, at the Maeght Foundation, in an exhibition that casts into fresh relief both the diversity and the depth of one of Europe's biggest collections of paintings, sculptures, graphic designs, and modern and contemporary drawings.
A stroll through the exhibition reacquaints the viewer with works by major 20th-century artists including Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Eduardo Chillida, Fernand Léger and Joan Miró, and the works of more contemporary artists, too. Each piece is a symbol of the Maeght Foundation's 50-year history… and its friendships. This new selection also unveils works that have entered into the collection within the past ten years and have either never been hung, or featured in temporary exhibitions.
Over 80 artists on show: Jean-Michel ALBEROLA, Pierre ALECHINSKY, Pat ANDREA, ARMAN, Eduardo ARROYO, Francis BACON (atelier), BALTHUS, Miguel BARCELÓ, Ronan BARROT, Jean BAZAINE, Anna-Eva BERGMAN, Georges BRAQUE, Alexander CALDER, Pier Paolo CALZOLARI, Louis CANE, Denis CASTELLAS, Marc CHAGALL, Eduardo CHILLIDA, CHRISTO, Daniel CLARKE, Vincent CORPET, Henri CUECO, Nicolas DE STAËL, Marco DEL RE, Pierre DMITRIENKO, Eugène DODEIGNE, Burhan DOGANÇAY, Alain DOMINGO, Max ERNST, ERRÓ, Sylvie FAJFROWSKA, Alekos FASSIANOS, Pierre FAUCHER, Julie FAURE-BRAC, François FIEDLER, Jean-Michel FOLON, Lars FREDRIKSON, Gérard FROMANGER, Wolfgang GÄFGEN, Gérard GAROUSTE, Gérard GASIOROWSKI, Alberto GIACOMETTI, Simone GORI, Juan GRIS, Hans HARTUNG, Jörg IMMENDORFF, Ellsworth KELLY, Joël KERMARREC, Ladislas KIJNO, Peter KLASEN, Jean LE GAC, LEE Bae, Fernand LÉGER, Ra’anan LEVY, Anne MADDEN, Brice MARDEN, Henri MATISSE, Jean-Michel MEURICE, Henri MICHAUX, Joan MIRÓ, Bernard MONINOT, Jacques MONORY, OH Sufan, Denis OPPENHEIM, Axel PAHLAVI, Pablo PALAZUELO, Gina PANE, Stéphane PENCRÉAC’H, Philippe PERRIN, Ernest PIGNON-ERNEST, Paul REBEYROLLE, Antonio RECALCATI, Assan SMATI, Pierre SOULAGES, Peter STÄMPFLI, Saül STEINBERG, SUI Jianguo, Sam SZAFRAN, Pierre TAL-COAT, Antoni TÀPIES, Djamel TATAH, Hervé TÉLÉMAQUE, Anne TRÉAL-BRESSON, Raoul UBAC, Claude VIALLAT, Jan VOSS.
