May 24th 2013: Art and wine at the Maeght Foundation

Work in progress - At the moment

As every year for several decades now, the few rows of vines owned by the Maeght Foundation have been producing a very small quantity of rosé for personal consumption.The vines belong to Adrien Maeght, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Foundation which carries his name. This renowned centre of modern art in Saint-Paul-de-Vence was created by his father, Aimé Maeght, in 1964. The Maeght Foundation welcomes over 200 000 visitors each year and owns one of the most important collections of 20th century paintings and sculptures in Europe.In 2012, the Cabinet d'Agronomie Provençale had the pleasure to take part in the production of the Foundation's wine, from harvesting to the bottling process.This cuvée is unique, not only for its small quantity, but also for its label designed each year by a different artist. So Aki Kuroda, Georges Braque, Eduardo Arroyo, Joan Miró or even Georges Wolinski have in turn brought a painterly brushstroke to the labeling of the bottles.The label for the 390 bottles produced in 2002 was painted by Jacques Monory. It bares his iconic animal, the tiger, in the blue monochrome which became his specialty and which he already used in 2008 for a set of paintings.The feline, which represents force, but also tenderness, as can be the case with wine, is lounging on a vintage car already featuring in a 2007 painting, "Voiture de rêve n°6".In 2013, we hope to enhace our brushstroke as oenology is also an art!For further information concerning the Maeght Foundation and the artist Jacques Monory, please check their websites:www.fondation-maeght.comwww.jacquesmonory.com
