Matisse in his walls
Re-hanging of the collection
In summer 2017, Matisse museum will propose a thematic re-hanging of its collection, particularly on the link between Matisse and Nice.
It will also open a series of invitations of artists, such as a Matisse's master, friend or successor, with the encounter of Matisse's and Georges Rouault's works.
Works from the permanent collection will be presented with some loans of the Fondation Georges Rouault.
The Matisse Museum is situated on the hill of Cimiez, not far from the Franciscan monastery with its Italianate gardens, the Hotel Regina where Matisse used to reside, and the Gallo-Roman ruins. Since the 5th of January 1963 the Museum has been welcoming vistors to its collection of works left by the artist (and his heirs) to the city of Nice where he lived from 1918 until 1954.
