I am always enthusiastic to bring the Maeght adventure to the public. By commenting on exceptional archive photos, I analyze and tell the story and the life of my grandfather, Aimé Maeght, a little kid from the North, orphan of the war of 14-18 who became the friend of the greatest artists of the 20th century, but also one of the most important art dealers in the world then creator of the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence.
