The leading lights of 20th-century European sculpture – Braque, Mirò, Giacometti – all grace the roster of the glittering Galerie Maeght, which was founded in Cannes in 1936 by dealer Aimé Maeght, gaining a Paris foothold a decade later, as well as historic printing press ARTE. Together with his wife Marguerite, in 1964, Aimé launched the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence, on the French Riviera – France’s very first private art foundation, and a major cultural attraction in its own right.
