Musée Marc Chagall - Nice, France

Visiting the Musée Marc Chagall, Nice, France. This collection is built around The Biblical Message, showcasing works of Marc Chagall's career: paintings, drawings, stained-glass windows and sculptures in the post-war era. The museum was created with the generosity of the artist and his wife. When in July 1966, Marc and Valentina Chagall donated seventeen paintings. Chagall opened the museum here himself in 1973.
