At the MAEGHT FOUNDATION
From 29 June to 17 November 2019, the Fondation Maeght is celebrating Joan Miró, a major player in the foundation's creation alongside Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and their architect friend Josep Lluís Sert. The exhibition "Joan Miró. Beyond painting." curated by Rosa Maria Malet, former director of the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, gives visitors the opportunity to discover an essential aspect of the artist: his exceptional graphic work.Download the press release
The exhibition is centred on the working process of Miró, an artist who produced one of the most remarkable bodies of printed work in the history of art. Made possible largely from an exceptional donation by Adrien Maeght, who worked with Miró in his studio at the ARTE print shop, the show presents over 200 works, including a number of unseen gouaches. Artist's proofs, posters, prints, original lithographs, printing plates, final proofs and rare books complete the exhibition and shed light on this prodigious creative work.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

Saint-Paul de Vence and the movies
Stars from the 7th Art have been frequenting the village for over 50 years. Directors, producers, actors, film-makers… the list is long. Film celebrities started to flock to the French Riviera back in the very early 1940s, drawn by the Victorine film studios in Nice and the Film Festival in Cannes.Download the press pack
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
