Sert in Saint-Paul de Vence

The Marguerite and Aime Maeght Foundation is a unique institution located on a hilltop in Saint Paul de Vence and overlooking the French Riviera.  The Maeght Foundation forms part of a distinctive group of similar 1960s institutions that include the Gulbenkian in Portugal and Louisiana in Denmark.  It was inaugurated on July 28th 1964 by Andre Malraux, then Minister of Cultural Affairs, who declared ‘this is not a museum.’  Indeed, these institutions were called art foundations and fused art, architecture and landscape.
