Antibes may not have as wide a choice of galleries as some of its French Riviera neighbours, but it still has an ace up its sleeve for art lovers. Book a hotel in Antibes and you’ll be close to the superb Picasso Museum, housed in the Chateau Grimaldi.
Visitors will find a variety of Antibes hotels near the Chateau Grimaldi Picasso Museum. There’s accommodation in Antibes to suit a range of budgets and tastes, from laid-back two and three-star hotels to deluxe five-star properties.
The 14th century Chateau Grimaldi was built upon the foundations of the ancient Greek town of Antipolis. In 1608, the fortress came under the ownership of the Grimaldis, the royal family of Monaco. From 1702 to 1925 the chateau served as the Antibes town hall, and it was subsequently turned into the Grimaldi Museum.
In 1946 part of the chateau even became the home and workshop of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. During his few months here, Picasso produced 23 paintings and 44 drawings.
The Picasso Museum was the first museum in the world to be dedicated to the artist. Picasso himself even said: “If you want to see the Picassos from Antibes, you have to see them in Antibes”.
The museum contains an excellent collection of the artist’s work, from drawings and paintings to etchings and even some of his ceramics. In total there are 245 works by Picasso displayed here. Some of the most notable paintings in the museum include The Goat and La Joie de Vivre.
As well as Picasso’s works, the museum also displays a number of photographs of the artist, many of them taken by his friend while he was living and working in Antibes.
The Picasso Museum also houses a few works by other famous artists including Joan Miró, Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman. There is also a room dedicated to Nicolas de Staël, who also lived in Antibes.
