Overview

If modern art has a "first family," it might very well be the Maeghts, whose gallery in Paris provided a literal and figurative base for so many 20th-century masters.

Here for the first time ever in book form is the story of this extraordinary family, filled with illustrations and documents by some of the legendary artists associated with it: Matisse, Braque, Duchamp, Miro, Chagall, Calder, Kandinsky, Giacometti, and many others. Spinning this remarkable tale with an authority and in-depth knowledge that only family members could provide, Isabelle and Yoyo Maeght recount key events in the family's life, including the Maeghts' greatest legacy of all, the world-renowned Aime and Marguerite Maeght Foundation, home to some of the greatest masterpieces of modern art and an architectural marvel in its own right.
