Musee Matisse (La)
Housed in a magnificent red building, this museum stands on Cimiez Hill, close to the city's Arènes (ancient amphitheater) and the Musee archeologique . Matisse lived in Cimiez from 1917 until his death in 1954. Paintings, drawings and some of his earliest works are on display, along with pieces that reveal his lesser-known talents as a sculptor. Several black and white photographs offer glimpses of the artist's private life.
I am sorry to say that this exhibition's overall impresssion it gives is that Matisse was much over-rated and stagnated in his art while Picasso moved on.
Some of the art work is actually badly executed and should not realy be on public show.
