“On the Cimiez Hill, just above Nice, the Musée Marc Chagall finds itself in an extraordinary location.
An alcove of greenery bathed in a warm, calm atmosphere, this collection currently has a Biblical theme.
A painter of Russian origin, Marc Chagall offered a beautiful gift to France throughout the 1960s and 1970s – seventeen masterpieces constituting his work on the Bible.
These pieces make up part of the permanent collection of more than 400 paintings, watercolors, ink drawings, and pastels.
This universe, dedicated to the works of Chagall, is teeming with colors used in original and unexpected ways.
In a calm monastery, visitors are invited to embark on the same legendary path as Marc Chagall (1887-1985), one of the pioneers of Modernism, a cultural movement that took Western societies by storm from the end of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th.
All visitors can also walk around the Museum’s splendid olive tree park, which dominates the fascinating city of Nice. ”
