The Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation is a unique example of a private European Foundation. Inaugurated on July 28th 1964 by André Malraux, then Minister of Cultural Affairs, this architectural ensemble was entirely conceived and financed by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght to present modern and contemporary art in all its forms. Painters and sculptors collaborated closely in the realisation of this Foundation with Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert by frequently creating monumental works integrated into the building and gardens: the Giacometti courtyard, one of the world’s most famous in-situ works, the Miró labyrinth, the mural mosaics by Marc Chagall and Pierre Tal-Coat, the pool and stained glass window by Georges Braque, the Pol Bury fountain. A true museum in nature, the Maeght Foundation is an exceptional site that contains one of the most important collections in Europe, with paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works of modern art from the 20th century and contemporary artists (Franco Adami, Del Re, Erik Dietman, Kelly, Mitchell, Monory, Oh Sufan, Takis, Tàpies…).
