What To Expect

Fondation Maeght
The Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation is a private foundation located near the village of Saint-Paul de Vence, 25 km from Nice entirely conceived and financed by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght to present modern and contemporary art in all its forms. Open all year, the Maeght Foundation welcomes visitors in a unique, architectural complex designed to present modern and contemporary art in all its forms.

Inaugurated on 28 July 1964 by André Malraux, the Foundation was born from the friendship of Aimé Maeght, art dealer and gallery owner in Paris, with the great names of modern art including Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Fernand Leger, Georges Braque, Alberto Giacometti, Marc Chagall and Eduardo Chillida.

Painters and sculptors have collaborated with the Catalan architect by creating works integrated into the building and in nature: the Giacometti courtyard, one of the world’s most famous “in-situ” works, the Miró labyrinth filled with sculptures and ceramics, the mural mosaics of Chagall and Tal Coat, Braque's pool and stained glass window, the Bury fountain. The complex blends interior and exterior space with the sculpture garden, courtyards, terraces and patios, showrooms, chapel, library and bookstore.

The Maeght Foundation owns one of the largest collections of paintings, sculptures and graphic works of the twentieth century in Europe and contemporary artists. It organizes thematic exhibitions such as retrospectives or exhibitions of today’s creators.

La Fondation Maeght welcomes visitors to a unique and timeless place in which art, architecture and nature exist in harmony together. Working in collaboration with Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert, world-leading painters and sculptors created works for La Fondation that are integrated into his building, and into its natural surroundings. The complex ranges across internal and exterior spaces, from a sculpture garden, courtyards, terraces and patios, to exhibition rooms, a chapel, a library and a bookshop. La Fondation owns one of the largest collection in Europe of paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic arts of the 20th century (Bonnard, Braque, Calder, Chagall, Giacometti, Hepworth, Kandinsky, Léger, Miró,
A new departure— Museum Outside and In.

We thankfully travelled by taxi to Fondation Maeght, it’s an uphill walk and not for the faint-hearted. The height gives it the most wide angled view of the surrounding countryside. Our driver Julian carefully drove past pilgrims of all ages. This Foundation holds the largest collection of paintings, sculptures and works on paper of modern and contemporary art in Europe, over 13,000 works in all.

Outside the Foundation building is like moving through an open air museum, sculptures and water lead the observer into a tranquil space. The only noise you’ll hear is sweet bird song. It has an ethereal quality. Art and architecture work in perfect harmony with nature. There is a timeless element present. Joan Miro with his unique style created a playful labyrinth where you can get lost among the numerous sculptural pieces.

Giacometti with his beautiful long and slender sculptures that reflect his view of reality. A true surrealist, perhaps the leading one. They are experimental and fresh and yet statuesque, powerful and gentle. George’s Braque’s works were integrated into the building and it’s natural surroundings by Josep Sert, a Catalan architect.

The beautiful setting/ building, influenced by Joan Miro. So like his foundation in Mallorca.
Expansive exhibition spaces, set in olive groves.
The calmness in general, perhaps due to few visitors due to Covid!
Easy access from Nice by buses 9 and 400
Sadly cafe out of action.
Good value entrance via Viator, the first time I have used them so wondered if it was a scam but NOT SO! Thank you Viator.
