Photographer's Note

Fondation Maeght

"Nestling amid the umbrella pines in the hills above St-Paul-de-Vence, this small modern art museum is one of the world's finest. Aimé and Marguerite Maeght were Cannes art dealers who numbered the likes of Chagall, Matisse and Miró among their clients and friends. Their private collection formed the basis for the museum, which opened in 1964. Like St-Paul itself, the Maeght has been a magnet for celebrities. Duke Ellington, Samuel Beckett, André Malraux, Merce Cunningham and, of course, a galaxy of the artist themselves have mingled at fundraising events. The museum now receives over 250,000 visitors each year."
