One of France’s most memorable small museums, the Fondation Maeght was founded by art lovers Marguerite and Aimé Maeght in the hills of Saint Paul near Vence. The contemporary art collectors collaborated with painters and sculptors and Catalan architect Lluis Sert to create a site where art and sculpture was integrated into a holistic aesthetic experience. Among the highlights: a Giacometti sculpture courtyard, a Jean Miró labyrinth, or sculpture garden, as well as mural mosaics by Chagall and stained glass windows and pool mosaics by Braque. The intimate art oasis contains one of the most important collection of contemporary art in Europe with paintings, drawings and sculptures by such greats at Kandinsky, Calder and Léger as well as contemporary artists such as Adami, Del Re, Kuroda and Takis. Don’t miss the Braques chapel, Chagall’s largest painting or the Bury fountain. With its powerful Giacommeti sculptures in the courtyard and Miró’s labyrinth of giant wild creatures, the Fondation Maeght makes for a great family-friendly art expedition.
