Welcome to Musée Matisse

Musée Matisse

Renowned artist Henri Matisse spent the last few years of his life in Nice and he is honoured by this museum. The Musée Matisse has several permanent collections, mostly painted in Nice and many donated by the artist and his heir. The better known paintings include Nude in an Armchair with a Green Plant(1937), Nymph in the Forest(1935/1942) and Portrait of Madame Matisse(1905). There is also an ensemble of drawings including The Créole Dancer(1951) and Blue Nude IV(1952). Seeing his nude sketches today, you'll wonder why early critics denounced them as 'the female animal in all her shame and horror.'
