The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nice in Nice, France at 33 av. des Baumettes was built in the former private mansion built in 1878 by the Ukrainian Princess, Elisabeth Vassilievna Kotschoubey. Named for the artist Jules Chéret who lived and worked in Nice during his final years, the museum opened as the "Palais des Arts Jules Chéret" on 7 January 1928.

The museum houses a collection of art spanning the past four centuries. There are paintings by Chéret and other artists who lived and worked on the French Riviera such as Gustav-Adolf Mossa (fr), who for many years was curator of the museum. The small museum has sculptures by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, François Rude, Michel de Tarnowsky and Auguste Rodin, plus ceramic pieces by Pablo Picasso. Some of the paintings are from:

  • Marie Bashkirtseff
  • Pierre Bonnard
  • Jan Brueghel the Elder
  • Bronzino
  • Benjamin Constant
  • Kees van Dongen
  • Raoul Dufy
  • Jean-Honoré Fragonard
  • Marie Laurencin
  • Luc-Olivier Merson
  • Claude Monet
  • Alfred Sisley
  • Édouard Vuillard

Interesting enough art, but not much information on it - limited info was only in French. €10 per person, a little pricey. Website is awful
 Not bad

This museum is the heir to the 1st museum formed from the deposits of the State desired by Napoleon III. Installed in 1928 in a sumptuous villa, the collections cover more than 5 centuries.

Did you know that this building was originally built for the Ukrainian Princess? Don’t forget to stop at Rodin’s gem sculpture “The Kiss”.
