Fondation Dina Vierny-Maillol Museum presents more than Maillol's work in many other collections of modern art.
Created in 1995 by Dina Vierny, the muse of sculptor Aristide Maillol, it features many works by Maillol and a large collection of modern art of the twentieth century (painting, sculpture and drawing). Temporary exhibitions are devoted to the art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
Aristide Maillol memory is celebrated by presenting all of his work, which begins with painting Nabi and continues with the decorative arts and sculpture.
One room is dedicated to friends of Maillol, works that Maillol himself had. We can find works of Gauguin, Pierre Bonnard, Odilon Redon, Maurice Denis. Abstraction is represented by Kandinsky, Ivan and Serge Pouni Poliakov and Emile Gilioli sculpture.
The second part of the permanent collections of the Fondation Dina Vierny is devoted to modern art and contemporary artists. Dina Vierny had met such an important collection of Modern Primitives around a painting of Henri Rousseau: Bauchant, Bombois, Rimbert, Seraphine, Vivin, Racoff, Peyronnet, Desnos.
