In 2014, the Maeght Foundation invites all art lovers to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary. Fifty years of shared passion with artists and audiences around the world in the service of creation.
For its major summer exhibition, the Maeght Foundation chose to pay tribute to the works in the spirit of a very unique face to face encounter, enhanced by the pure, luminous architecture of the Fondation Maeght.

Some one hundred works will recall this process.
