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Matisse, 187 items that had a place with the painter, and prints, woven artworks, ceramics, stained glass and numerous historical documents.
