Modern painters in south of France

In the 20th century, the French Riviera became a sanctuary of modern art. The world’s greatest artists found their inspiration in the Mediterranean light and art of living: Renoir, Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall and their successors César, Klein, Arman, Niki de St-Phalle…Renoir in Cagnes-sur-Mer, Bonnard in Le Cannet have left their mark in their memory-laden homes, now museums.
In 1917, Matisse began his 40-year love affair with the region and its very special light, which were such an inspiration for his Mediterranean colours.
Another artistic giant, Picasso, lived on the French Riviera, Here, his creative intensity gave rise to tremendous work, testimony to his genius and formidable joy of living.
Thanks to the New Realists and the School of Nice, the city has become a world-famous centre of avant-garde art. The French Riviera is generally acknowledged as a haven for contemporary artistic expression. With nearly a hundred museums and over 150 art galleries, the French Riviera offers the broadest range of museums in France after the Parisian region.
