Foundation Maeght, St. Paul de Vence and Jazz a Juan !!

Alexander Calder

Today I ventured with the guests from the Antibes American city - Newport Beach, CA to the Foundation Maeght in St. Paul de Vence.

Foundation Maeght is a museum of modern art situated in Saint-Paul de Vence in the south of France about 25km from Nice. It was founded by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght in 1964 and houses paintings, scuptures, collages, ceramics and all forms of modern art.

The collection includes works by many important 20th century artists including Bonnard, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Alberto Giacometti, Fernand Léger and Joan
Miró among others.

Last night Wolf, Isabelle and I were invited to attend the Victoires du Jazz located in the beautiful setting of Jazz a Juan. Marcus Miller, George Benson, Chuchu Valdes took to the stage. C'est tres fantastique for sure !!!

Afterwards, we were invited to the Jazz Club at the Garden Beach Hotel ... delicious finger foods, salads, shrimp, croquettes ... champagne, wine .... ahhhh ... ma vie dans Antibes - est incroyable !

This cutie is the great trumpeter and crooner Ronald Baker ... I think this photo will be the subject for my next painting !!!
