By commenting on exceptional archival photos, Yoyo Maeght analyzes and tells the story and life of his grandfather, Aimé Maeght, a little kid from the North, orphan of the 14-18 war who became a friend of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, but also one of the most important art dealers in the world, then creator of the Maeght Foundation in St. Paul-de-Vence.

As a follow-up to her book La Saga Maeght, published by Robert Laffont, Yoyo Maeght offers a conference where she describes the Maeght epic, from 1930 to today, with the meetings, artists, daring, dramas, projects and achievements. Her knowledgeable eye allows her to deliver an uncompromising analysis of the art world.
