Miró, Calder, Giacometti, Braque: Aimé Maeght and His Artists

About

The Royal Academy presents an exhibition demonstrating the achievement of the famous Galerie Maeght. Founded by Aimé and Marguerite Maeght, the gallery opened in Paris in 1945 and was to become one of the most influential and creative galleries of the twentieth century. The artists it showed expressed a bold new spirit in art which exploded in France after the dark years of the war. This exhibition will present Aimé Maeght's outstanding contributions to art in the mid-twentieth century — as an art dealer, exhibition maker and publisher — and will focus on the major artists he exhibited. The exhibition contains more than 140 paintings, sculptures, ceramics, prints and artists' books by Miró, Calder, Giacometti and Braque, as well as works by Bonnard and Matisse, from the extensive collection of the Fondation Maeght in Saint Paul de Vence. Little known film footage of the artists at work and relaxing with their patron and his family will be shown, revealing the remarkably close relationship that existed between Aimé Maeght and his artists.
