It’s a collection worth a detour if you are nearby St Paul and are interested in art. The present temporary exhibition was not my favorite (Jacques Monory) but the permanent collection it’s very nice, especially the sculptures, the Giacometti and the very peaceful garden.

Fond memories brought me to revisit. It is even better than I remembered. The combination of art, sculpture, movement, water, dappled shade and the Provence sun are a true delight.

If you’re a fan of mid century architecture, then the building alone is worth the visit. The grounds and landscaping are also wonderful. There is so much attention to detail, even the doorhandles, exterior lights and garden café furniture were designed by Alberto Giacometti and his brother. There are some wonderful murals and artworks permanently built into the space, and the collection in the garden is a fabulous welcome.

As you’d expect, the 20 century art inside is amazing. The permanent collection is wonderful, and when we visited, the temporary exhibition in that season was Juan Miro, it was beautifully curated and packed to the gills. The natural light flood in the gallery shows all the exhibits off beautifully.

There is a lovely café in the grounds where we had lunch, but you’re a short stroll from Saint Paul de Vence, where you can also eat well and is a lovely ‘must see’ town in the area.

Parking is either in the grounds, and an overspill carpark on the left as you drive up the hill from the village towards the gallery. Worth parking there if you intend to visit both.

You’ll find this modern art museum just outside the village of St-Paul-de-Vence, and it’s well worth seeking out. The collection once belonged to Aime and Marguerite Maegt, art dealers from Cannes. Many of the exhibits are outdoors, so best to visit on a dry day. we particularly liked the courtyard dominated by Giacometti’s slender bronze walking figures; also, don’t miss Miro’s l’Oiseau Lunaire. Another highlight, this time inside, is La Vie, by Chagall. After your visit, head up to St. Paul and visit his grave, in the small cemetery just outside this hill-top town.

Was all Miro and Giacometti
Don’t expect to find impressionists or Picasso
Beautiful collection and museum
