Created by Jean and Mona Guyot in 1992, the Hippocrene Foundation is an officially recognised non-profit organisation that aims to strengthen cohesion between young Europeans.
It supports institutional, cultural and humanitarian projects which have a European dimension. The name of the Foundation was chosen in reference to the legendary fountain, fabled to have burst forth when the ground was struck by the hoof of Pegasus. Hippocrene became a source of inspiration to poets and Muses alike. Since 2001, the former agency of architect Mallet-Stevens (1886-1945), founder of the Union of Modern Artists (1929), has served as the Foundation’s headquarters. This prime example of modern architecture offers an ideal setting for the promotion of different forms of artistic expression. Hippocrene Foundation is a dynamic meeting place for painters, musicians, philosophers, psychoanalysts and writers, all united by a common desire to transcend national boundaries.
The Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation is a unique example of a private European Foundation. Inaugurated on July 28th 1964 by André Malraux, then Minister of Cultural Affairs, this architectural ensemble was entirely conceived and financed by Aimé and Marguerite Maeght to present modern and contemporary art in all its forms. Painters and sculptors collaborated closely in the realisation of this Foundation with Catalan architect Lluis Sert by creating frequently monumental works integrated into the building and gardens: the Giacometti courtyard, the Miró labyrinth filled with sculptures and ceramics, mural mosaics by Chagall and Tal-Coat, a pool and stained glass window by Braque, a Bury fountain, stabile of Calder.
The Maillol museum exhibits many large collections of modern art put together by Dina Vierny whose range and diversity cut a wide swathe through the art of the 20th century:

There is also a drawing cabinet made up of works by Degas, Picasso, Suzanne Valadon, Foujita, which enlarges the scope of the rooms of drawings devoted to Henri Matisse and Raoul Dufy. Conceptual art appears first in the Marcel Duchamp room and also there are Russian painters like Eric Bulatov, Oscar Rabine and Vladimir Yankilevsky.
