The year 2023 will mark the Centenary of the Villa Noailles , a former holiday residence commissioned by the Viscount and Viscountess of Noailles from the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens.
For the first time, the CAB Foundation in Saint-Paul de Vence will host an exhibition from the program of the Centenary Outside the Walls of the Villa Noailles.
This unprecedented exhibition will pay homage to Andrée Putman (1925-2013) and her work of rediscovery with the creation of Ecart International, which brought out of the shadows a whole forgotten section of the history of the Modern Movement and its most great architects, whose works it protected, valued and disseminated.
Pioneering artists supported and collected in the 1920s by a few scholarly patrons, including the Viscount and Viscountess de Noailles, rare examples of aristocrats whose destiny was intimately linked to the history of the avant-gardes.
This centenary year of the villa Noailles will be the occasion to pay homage, in a scenography imagined by her daughter Olivia, to Andrée Putman and to these creators of the Modern Movement, who, a century ago already, laid the groundwork for our way of living. The pieces that will be exhibited there are still marketed today by Ecart International.
Ecart International is honored to be a partner of this exhibition, curated by Eléa Legangneux, a research historian and specialist in 20th century French decorative arts. Since 2019, she has curated the Historic Design exhibitions at the Villa Noailles.
An exhibition not to be missed from March 22 to October 31 23. Monday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the CAB foundation 5766 chemin des Trious 06570 Saint-Paul-de-Vence
