Aimé Maeght (1906-1981) was an avid art collector and art editor and after meeting Pierre Bonnard he founded the Galerie Maeght in 1932. After WWII he then opened in Paris with the support of Matisse and Bonnard.
The gallery quickly became a focus point for such artists as Braque, Marchand, Rouault, Baya. Maeght ‘s exhibition in 1947 “Le Surréalisme” presented by Breton and Marcel Duchamps was a huge success and from then on the gallery grew and encompassed many artists; Calder, Chagall, Giacometti and of course Wassily Kandinsky.
This poster created by Kandinsky is for his exhibition KANDINSKY Jusqu'a l'abstraction. Galerie Maeght, Paris in 1951.
