Musée des Beaux-Arts
Collections by such renowned artists like Chéret and Mossa, who are two icons from Nice.
An extensive walk round the history of art
A Renaissance palace as a luxury headquarters, a central location, and first-class collections of art. What more can you ask for from an art gallery? The Museum of Fine Arts in Nice is also known as "Palais des Arts Jules Chéret" to pay tribute to this great painter of posters who spent the latter years of his life in the city, and the gallery and the hall accommodate an interesting retrospective of his work. Within his permanent exhibitions, it's possible to enjoy creations by important artists such as Rodin, Pierre Bonnard, Boudin, Raoul, Dufy, and Monet, as well as early Netherlandish, Norwegian and Italian painting from the 16th to the 18th centuries. Perhaps the most prominent works are by the local painter Gustav-Adolf Mossa, who is an icon of the French symbolist trend, and a real emblem of Nice, which is the city that marked his life and his vision of art from beginning to end.
