Balance math and the plastic arts at the Fondation Vasarely. Are you desperate to make mathematics interesting to your children? During your stay, go to the Fondation Vasarely near your hotel. No doubt your family would be unable to resist the puzzling works of the French-Hungarian artist, Victor Vasarely. Through his 44 exhibited works, the artist invites the visitor to change their perspective by playing with volumes. While one painting seems to swell up, another imitates the movement of a fall thanks playing with shapes. Once inside the honeycombed center of the foundation, surrounded by works of art measuring 8 meters by 6 meters, the effect is immediate. Optical illusions, shaded colors, architecture. This great sensory experience is offered to you by the Fondation Vasarely.
