Chagall Museum


The Chagall Museum (Musee Chagall) in Nice France features the world's largest collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures by the artist Marc Chagall.  Among the works on display are Matise's 17 Biblical Message paintings.

In 1966, Marc and Vava Chagall left Vence to settle in Saint-Paul. They had a big house built on the edge of the village, called La Colline , where Chagall could work - for although the artist was almost 80 his work was very much in demand! Many of the pictures he painted in Saint-Paul are vibrant odes to love: loving couples entwined against calm blue skies, surrounded by birds and bunches of flowers, floating over the village and its ramparts.

The city is nicknamed Nice la Belle ( Nissa La Bella in Niçard ), which means Nice the Beautiful , which is also the title of the unofficial anthem of Nice, written by Menica Rondelly in 1912.

The Musee Massena in Nice France houses the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire.  The museum is located on the Promenade des Anglai s, across from the Mediterranean Sea.
