In 2014, the Maeght Foundation invites all art lovers to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary. The major spring exhibition will be devoted to the architecture of Josep Lluís Sert, influenced by a lifetime of dialogue with the greatest artists of his time.
The exhibition presents Josep Lluís Sert's architecture in its relationship with art and the artists. Models, drawings, plans, photographs and films, sometimes made by Josep Lluís Sert himself, provide a new look at the birth of this masterpiece of architecture of the twentieth century; the Maeght Foundation, from the foundations of the project to its completion and extension project.

Painters and sculptors collaborated with the Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert, creating works which were integrated into the building and the surrounding natural environment: the Giacometti courtyard, the Miró labyrinth with its sculptures and ceramics, the mosaic murals of Chagall and Tal Coat, Braque’s pond and stained glass window and Bury’s fountain. Indoor and outdoor spaces link up with each other through the sculpture garden, the courtyards, terraces and patios. The Maeght Foundation is already famous for its architecture and gardens; it is also home to one of Europe’s richest collections of modern and contemporary art. The greenery of its grounds makes the Maeght Foundation the ideal place to discover the great artists of our time.
Between two temporary exhibitions, some rooms can be closed to the public. The fee is reduced accordingly.
