Musee Matisse - Review

The Musée Matisse in Nice is a national exhibition hall which was dedicated to the work of the French painter Henri Matisse. It accumulates one of the biggest gatherings in the world from the life of Henry Matisse up to expectations, including his masterful beginnings and his development through the final expectations and creations.

It was shut for some years throughout remodels, and was revived in 1993. With another present day wing and revamped spaces, the display center now widely features its whole lasting gathering, which has pressed on to expand since 1963 through a few successive acquisitions and gifts.

The historical center's prime collections are made up of mixed articles, basically those of Matisse himself, who existed and worked in Nice from 1917 to 1954. Also included are the works of his beneficiaries, and in addition works helped by the State. The display center houses 68 compositions and gouaches, 236 drawings, 218 prints, 95 photographs, 57 models and 14 books showed by Matisse, 187 items that had a place with the painter, and prints, woven artworks, ceramics, stained glass and numerous historical documents.

Musee Matisse Information

  • The display center, which was opened in 1963, is placed in the Villa des Arenes, a seventeenth-century villa in the neighborhood of Cimiez. In 1989, the archaeological display center was moved to the close-by old site of the city, permitting the Musée Matisse to be stretched.

  • TL;Dr: don't bring small children here The museum and exhibition was excellent and interesting, however my visit ended on a foul note. I asked in the entrance if it was OK to bring my 16 month old daughter, and all was fine. When visiting the fourth floor (last part), at the end of the exhibition, my daughter suddenly cried out "mommy", twice, albeit very loud. This is something that children do, unfortunately. To my surprise, museum security rushed up closely and hushed directly at my daughter, quite violently (only verbally though), but I felt very uncomfortable, like I was stealing or destroying art of something. And of course very scary for my daughter. Needless to say, we left the museum immediately. . As a comparison, all other similar museums I visited this summer has met my daughters occasionally loud voice with understanding or playful conversation. I'd advise the museum not to let small children in if you intend to continue this kind of behavior, I'm very disappointed.

  • There is currently a temporary exhibition on Matisse and Picasso. 2018 is the 100 year anniversary of the first time Matisse and Picasso headlined an art show together. The temporary exhibition displayed Picasso and Matisse paintings of similar subjects in the same room or sometimes, side by side. It was a great opportunity for one to compare and contrast these two masters. The most moving item in the show was a painting Picasso painted of Matisse's studio after Matisse had died. The permanent collection provided background on Matisse as well as showing some of his early traditional work. Later works were also on display. I am biased towards Matisse's involvement in the Fauvism movement. There were enough works here to leave me satisfied. I enjoyed my visit and I recommend this museum to everyone.

  • We caught the Matisse Picasso exhibit in the museum and we really appreciate it. We saw many works of Matisse and Picasso that demonstrated the artists influence on one another. On the whole we thought it was a really compact and well themed museum. Of course if one would be disappointed if you hope to catch the major works of Matisse there. If you go there wanting to learn more about Matisse, i think you will find a lot of interesting stuff.

  • Museum is good and informative potentially a tad small. Staff spoke good English and the ticket price included other museums too. Students go free. But not special enough for 5 stars

  • I liked getting to museum since u can see where people in Nice live. Receptionists were friendly. Liked the museum space. Museum was nice, but we were kicked out of boutique in the museum 15 minutes before museum closes. So you know if you are planning to get something from there to do it earlier.
