Art on the French Riviera

The French Riviera boasts several museums — dedicated to Picasso, Renoir, Matisse, Chagall, and Modern Art — and, in particular, the unique Maeght Foundation in beautiful Saint-Paul-de-Vence. To mark its 50th anniversary, there is a special exhibition to honor the vision of the collector and founder, Aimé Maeght. About 100 works will be on display through November 11, including those of Calder, Chagall, Giacometti, Adami, Kandinsky, Miro, and many more. The museum also hosts live music performances “les nuits concerts” on selected dates.

The medieval village makes a delightful day trip, or even an overnight stay, with its winding lanes and views of the mountains, Provence, and Mediterranean.
