Marie-Laure et Charles de Noailles. Mécènes du XXe siècle
The story of a legendary couple acquainted with the greatest artists and creators of their time…
The Noailles villa is an emblematic place of modernity that profoundly marked the decades following WWI (Man Ray, Robert Mallet- Stevens, Sonia Delaunay, Djo Bourgeois, Jean Cocteau, Erik Satie, Luis Buñuel, Paul Éluard, Jean- Michel Franck etc.). This unique book looks back at the art patronage of Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles who acquired works from every art field from 1923 to 1973. All throughout their life, they closely followed the artistic and intellectual debates of their time and contributed through commissions and other kinds of supports. Their story reshaped the face of art patronage and is part of a heritage we keep investigating now more than ever. Permanent curators of the villa Alexandre Mare and Stéphane Boudin-Lestienne are the authors of the catalogue texts and provide an exclusive insight on the exceptional life of this couple.
