Just a few steps away from the Hotel Regina, where Matisse lived, this Genoese-style 17th-century villa keeps a significant number of the artist's paintings, hundreds of his drawings and engravings, as well as an assortment of his sculptures and illustrated books. Various photographs and artefacts from Matisse's personal collection are also scattered around, giving each space a lived-in feel that is entirely in keeping with the breezy Mediterranean vibe of the villa's burnt-red façade and tall shuttered windows. From the vast cut-out Fleurs et Fruits in the museum's light-filled atrium to the supreme delicacy of such paintings as Tempête à Nice, the breadth of Matisse's output is made abundantly clear in the progression of each display.
