Musée National Marc Chagall
You will have the privilege of admiring his Message Biblique series. Are you going to miss this?
A new contemporary gem
Although this building isn't very big, it's large enough to house the most important permanent collection by this great artist. Marc Chagall was quite a symbol of the avant-garde trends during the 20th century with works permanently marked by spirituality and dreams; a talent that was ahead of his time. Some of his most important creations organised in five different periods of his life are exhibited in this national museum such as the famous self-portraits, Les Arlequins, Libération, and Résurrection, but what really stands out is the series of paintings titled Message Biblique, which is made up of seventeen paintings on the subject of genesis and the creation. This series of paintings was donated by the artist in 1966, and were the definite works for establishing this centre. Surrounding the building, you'll find some exquisite gardens to walk round, and a nice terrace. Remember: to come to Nice and not discover this museum will make your visit a little less incomplete.
