Martigny-Ville Things to Do
The foundation is a unique thing. It has no permanent (or almost no permanent) exhibits of its own (do not start groaning ;0) ).
It does, in fact, an even more important thing. It offers temporary shows of works of art of a particular artist/period for some 6 months for each exhibition but it gets the very best pieces
of art, from both public and private collections.
I saw two of the shows, one of Van Gogh and another... of Russian Icons. And the second was probably the most (or second most) complete display of them I ever saw! Remember? I'm Russian and live in Moscow after all!
