The Spirit of a Collection: Donations

1 December 2018–16 June 2019

Exhibition Overview

View of the exhibition The spirit of a collection: donations including works by Joan Miró, Head and Bird, 1967 and Fernand Léger, The campaign part, 1954.

The Maeght Foundation is hosting a new exhibition of selected works from its own collection. Curated by art critic Henri-François Debailleux, the event will run from 1 December 2018 to 16 June 2019. The Foundation has amassed a wealth of exquisite works over the years, first and foremost thanks to donations by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and subsequently to gifts from artists, friends, family members, collectors and supporters of the Foundation. It is this very mind-set of generosity and caring that will be spot-lit, until the spring, at the Maeght Foundation, in an exhibition that casts into fresh relief both the diversity and the depth of one of Europe's biggest collections of paintings, sculptures, graphic designs, and modern and contemporary drawings.
