Nice is a city of artists and is home to some excellent art museums. But the city is perhaps best known for its connection with famous French artist Henri Matisse, and a trip to Nice isn’t complete without a visit to the Matisse Museum.
Matisse first moved to Nice in 1921 and was based in the city until his death in 1954. Most of his female nudes, prints and paper cut-outs were created when he lived in the city, and its scenes and colours greatly influenced him as an artist.
The Matisse Museum is located on the hill of Cimiez and is housed in an impressive wine-coloured 17th century Genoese villa. The museum has been open since 1963, and fans of the artist can come here to view a wide collection of the artist’s sculptures, paintings, drawings, and his famous paper cut-outs, mostly created during the time Matisse lived in Nice.
Also on display in the Matisse Museum are personal objects belonging to the painter, such as a couple of his chairs and his painting table. Temporary exhibitions are held in the museum’s modern basement.
Those interested in learning more about Matisse can see visit his house, located at 1 Place Charles Felix near the celebrated Cours Saleya flower market. In the 1940s Matisse lived in the magnificent Régina building at 71 Boulevard de Cimiez – the building was originally Queen Victoria’s winter palace, but had been converted into apartments during Matisse’s time. This is where the artist both lived and worked, and also where he died in 1954. Visitors can also see Matisse’s final resting place, located in the Cimiez Cemetery, just across the park from the museum.
Holidaymakers looking to base themselves in Nice will find many hotels near the Matisse Museum, mostly located in or around the Old Town. These range from simple budget options to luxury five-star choices and international hotel chains.
