Exhibition 2020 at the Maeght Foundation
FROM 1st JULY TO 22 NOVEMBER 2020
AT THE MAEGHT FOUNDATION
The Fondation Maeght is presenting the first monographic exhibition dedicated to Jacques Monory since his death in 2018, thus paying tribute to him. Simply entitled “Jacques Monory”, the exhibition presents sixty years of his career and revisits the work of this major Figuration Narrative artist, in constant tension between modernity and the singularity of the blue that made him famous.More infos
Organized by Laurence d’Ist, curator of the exhibition, this overview follows a non-chronological path that attempts, from one room to the next, to make the most of the echoes of and deviations from this singular work that deserves revisiting.
Out of all the Figuration Narrative painters, Monory was no doubt the only one to be fully narrative. Sometimes hyperrealist, the enigmatic scenes that he painted and juxtaposed to form a sort of haunted diary of a painter who questioned the world’s reality every day. The blue that made him famous, whether monochrome or with other colors in the spectrum, is the color of this doubt. It acts as a dreamlike veil and establishes a certain distance.Press release and photos on request at the press section of the Maeght Foundation
The Maeght Foundation
The Maeght Foundation
A place of dialogue between art and nature
Inaugurated on July 28th, 1964 by André Malraux, the Fondation Marguerite and Aimé Maeght has become one of the major international cultural institutions. 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. 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 Maeght Foundation has one of the largest collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works of modern and contemporary art in Europe.Press release and photos on request at the press section of the Maeght Foundation
Mas de Pierre in Saint-Paul-de-Vence is entering an expansion, restoration and embellishment phase.
The new Domaine du Mas de Pierre will open in Spring 2021!
On October 1st, Mas de Pierre closed the doors of its seven villas in beautiful Provençal landscape colours. This temporary closure heralds the writing of a new chapter in the history of this charming setting, camped at the foothills of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a treasure trove of flavours from the South.
Until spring 2021, this 5-star hotel is embarking on a large-scale renovation and extension programme to offer its guests a change of scenery with more comfort, luxury and conviviality. A cocktail of values in complete harmony with "Relais & Châteaux", an association to which Mas de Pierre has been affiliated since 2006.Download the press release

Guided Tours on Art
The Folon chapel
"Associating my name with a chapel in Saint-Paul de Vence will be an expression of my love for all those in the village whom I have loved". Decorating the White Penitents’ chapel was one of Folon’s last projects. Saint-Paul de Vence was the perfect setting for the work of an artist so sensitive to the beauty of shapes, substances and the light.Download the press pack
In the footsteps of Marc Chagall
This lover of light and the Mediterranean land lived in Saint-Paul for nearly 20 years, tirelessly integrating the village and its ramparts in his paintings. Here, Marc Chagall painted his favourite theme, love, over and over again.Download the press pack
