Saint Paul de Vence | Face à l’oeuvre – Fondation Maeght

face a l'oeuvre fondation maeght 2014 02

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its foundation, the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence, houses an extraordinary exhibition. From 28 June to 11 November 2014, “Face à l’oeuvre” (In front of the work) exposes both 20th century masterpieces and contemporary artworks, in the spirit that inspired Aimé Maeght, his wife Marguerite and later Adrien Maeght when selecting the works for one of the most important privately-owned art collections in the world. Rejecting trends and aesthetic prejudices, the collection was created over time on the base of the works’ visual expressive strength and what Aimé Maeght defined “presence of the work”.

The list of art masters is truly impressive, from Valerio Adami to Henri Matisse, from Bacon to Chagall, from Miguel Barceló to Miró, from Lucien Freud to Kandinsky, just to name a few.
