The year 2023 will mark the Centenary of the Villa Noailles, the 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 as part of the Villa Noailles Centenary programme.


This new exhibition will pay tribute to Andrée Putman (1925-2013) and to her work of rediscovery, which brought out of the shadows a whole forgotten part of the history of the Modern Movement and its greatest architects, whose works she protected, promoted and disseminated.


These pioneering artists were supported and collected in the 1920s by a few erudite patrons, including the Viscount and Viscountess of Noailles, rare examples of aristocrats whose destiny was intimately linked to the history of the avant-garde.


This year’s Centenary of the Villa Noailles will be the occasion to pay tribute, in a scenography imagined by her daughter Olivia, to Andrée Putman and to these creators of the Modern Movement, who, a century ago, were already laying the foundations of our way of life.


Ecart International is honoured to be a partner of this exhibition curated by Eléa Legangneux, a research historian specialising in 20th century French decorative arts. Since 2019, she has curated the Historical Design exhibitions at the Villa Noailles.


An exhibition not to be missed from 22 March to 31 October 23.

Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm at the CAB foundation 5766 chemin des Trious 06570 Saint-Paul-de-Vence
