Sculpture Saturday #35

The Fondation Maeght is one of my favourite museums of modern art. It’s situated on a hill overlooking Saint-Paul de Vence, not too far from where I live. It was established in 1964 by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and houses paintings, sculptures, collages, ceramics and all forms of modern art.

The collection includes works by many important 20th century artists including Jean Arp, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Sam Francis, Alberto Giacometti, Wassily Kandinsky, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Léger and Joan Miró among others.

Today’s bronze sculpture, Le  Pépin géant (giant pip), is by Jean Arp (1886 – 1966), a German-French sculptor, painter and poet who was known as Dadaist (a European avant-garde art movement in early 20th century) and abstract artist.

I’m going to be featuring sculptures from the Fondation’s grdens for the next few weeks or so – enjoy!

This challenge is kindly hosted by Susan Kelly over at No Fixed Plans.

Share a photo of a statue or sculpture – go on, give it a go, you know you want to!
