Renowned artist Henri Matisse spent the last few years of his
life in Nice and he is honoured by this museum. The Musée Matisse
has several permanent collections, mostly painted in Nice and many
donated by the artist and his heir. The better known paintings
(1905). There is also an ensemble
of drawings including
(1952). Seeing his nude sketches today, you'll
wonder why early critics denounced them as 'the female animal in
all her shame and horror.'
