The Maeght Foundation
The Maeght Foundation is a story of family and friendship. Aimé & Marguerite Maeght came up with the idea and the funding in collaboration with Catalonian architect Josep Lluis Sert. Their artist friends participated in the design and in bringing the project to fruition, each taking over an area of the future Foundation. Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder and Fernand Léger all found the ideal creative setting in a museum at one with nature, where the rooms and the 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.
Take a guided tour of the Permanent Collection with a guide from the Tourist Information Office. Further information about prices and conditions, see "Discover - Guided tours".
