Picasso, Monet and Matisse
Picasso set up home in Antibes, before moving on to Cannes and later Vallauris. His former residence, the Chateau Grimaldi, is now a museum dedicated to the artist and hosting several of his works, which he and his wife donated. Further along the coast in Vallauris, where Picasso eventually settled, the Picasso National Museum is located in an old chapel. It is well worth a visit to witness Picasso’s works of art depicting war and peace that run across the walls of the vaults.
Monet also lived and painted in Antibes, depicting the village from many angles in his work. Matisse also spent extended periods in the area.
