Matisse dans la collection Nahmad

The Musée Matisse is privileged to welcome the sixteen paintings by Henri Matisse from the David and Ezra Nahmad Collection. Most of the Matisse from their collection were painted in Nice or Vence: here they are permeated with the light that brought them to life. They are presented alongside the museum’s permanent collection.

Noël Dolla, visite d’atelier / Sniper, 2018-2021

The exhibition brings together thirteen works from Noël Dolla’s latest Sniper series, created between 2020 and 2021 at the 109, a centre for contemporary art in Nice. In this new and vast studio, Dolla inaugurated a practice that allows him to work on very large formats, including canvases that are eleven metres long. Lying on a hanging strechter, he slides over them, wrestling with the painting without touching it.
