The Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence stands as a testament to the artistic vision of Victor Vasarely, showcasing his remarkable body of work. Established in 1966 by Vasarely himself, the foundation aimed to create a hub for the promotion of his ideals of ‘art for all’ and the ‘city of tomorrow.’ Construction of the museum began in 1973 under the guidance of architects John Sonnier and Dominique Ronsseray, who brought Vasarely’s designs to life. The museum was officially inaugurated on February 14, 1976.

At the heart of the Fondation Vasarely are forty-two monumental artworks by Vasarely, each measuring 6 by 8 meters (20 ft × 26 ft). These pieces are housed within seven “cells,” hexagonal rooms spanning 14 meters (46 ft) in diameter and 11 meters (36 ft) in height, providing an immersive and captivating experience for visitors.
