Henri Matisse is one of the most iconic French painters and this museum in Nice offers the chance to get to know both the artist and his work. The sumptuous 17th-century villa in which the collection is housed was Matisse’s home from 1917 to his death in 1954 and affords an intimate look at the painter’s life. Villa des Arènes includes a number of Matisse’s personal objects, such as his furniture. The museum houses many of his early paintings as well as his later sketches, plus numerous engravings and sculptures offering a chronological perspective on how the artist’s work developed over the years.
