Nice Museums, France

The artist's refuge

Nice did not follow the destiny of Cannes and Saint-Tropez. It does not claim movie stars, television stars... Nice attracted the lonely souls, the absolute masters of the last century such as Matisse, Chagall, Miro', Picasso, Renoir, Arman, Yves Klein, Léger, Ernst, artists who have often spent the last years of their life here, and who have transmitted the Provencal charm of the South of France in their canvases and their works, leaving an indelible heritage that today's visitor can admire in the numerous Provencal museums.
Nice is a sort of open book of modern art, a book that shows us the magic of the masters and the history of the twentieth century, but it doesn't stop here. Despite its distance from great international art destinations and its provincial size, Nice can still bring you modern art, thanks to the splendid new exhibition space of the MAMAC, which brings together a collection of the School of Nice and a collection of neo-realism, one part dedicated to Arte Povera and pop art.
With an offer of this kind, it's no wonder that lovers of modern and contemporary art have followed in the footsteps of their more illustrious predecessors.
