Marc Chagall National Museum

Browse the works of the great Franco-Russian painter at this museum, dedicated to his epic works based on the Old Testament.

One of Nice’s many excellent art galleries, the Marc Chagall National Museum showcases the work of this famous painter, who is known for his bold use of color. Explore the museum, which is based on his work inspired by religion and provides a great introduction to Chagall.

The museum was created in 1973, while Chagall was still alive, so it represents his work in the way that he wanted it to be seen. Chagall was Jewish, and the collection is built around his 12 paintings representing the biblical message. Inspect these brightly colored, often slightly cartoonish works depicting scenes from the Old Testament.

If you’re interested in the creative process, be sure to inspect the preparatory sketches for the biblical message paintings, which Chagall donated to the museum. These offer a rare glimpse into the artistic process, as you can see how the artworks developed from initial sketches into beautiful finished pieces.

As the museum grew, it began to incorporate more of Chagall’s work, much of it inspired by religion. As you move through the museum, spot artworks in many different formats. View colorful stained-glass windows, in keeping with the religious theme.

While you can spend a long time gazing at the artworks inside the museum itself, be sure to stroll around the peaceful grounds surrounding the building as well. Dotted with olive trees, the quiet gardens make the perfect setting for a relaxing walk. They are also part of the museum and contain artworks by Chagall. Most notable among the works displayed here is a huge mosaic, overlooking a reflecting pond and depicting the prophet Elijah.

The Marc Chagall National Museum is open daily except Tuesday and year-round except on some public holidays. An admission fee applies, though those under 18 and EU residents under 26 can enter for free. Admission is also free on the first Sunday of the month. To get here, ride local buses to nearby stops.
