Expert review of Musée National Marc Chagall
More art, but no apologies. Light, warmth and easy (ok, loose-) living have long attracted artists to Nice. It would be crazy not to take advantage, like going to Old Trafford and not watching the football, or the Yankee Stadium and ignoring the baseball.
Here, at the bottom of the Boulevard de Cimiez, we see Marc Chagall’s great, fluid Biblical tableaux in a setting specially created for them. The 12 large Old Testament paintings have a sort of mesmerising swirl which can stop an atheist in his tracks.
There’s probably no finer Chagall collection anywhere, or more touching artist’s signature than that on one of the walls. It reads: “To Vava my wife, my joy, my cheerfulness and my good fortune.”
Entry is 7.70 euros - but free for EU residents under 26-years-old, and free for everyone on the first Sunday of the month.
