The Musée national Marc Chagall stands on the ancient hill of Cimiez, Nice, surrounded by a garden of Mediterranean trees and plants. The museum owns the largest collection of Chagall’s works in any permanent collection, thanks to the artist himself, and his wife Valentina, who donated a large number of works to the State. These donations include the 17 large paintings on Biblical subjects, which gave the museum its name.
Built on the initiative of André Malraux to house the donation, the museum also has two works specially created by Chagall to fit into the architecture: the stained glass windows in the concert room and the mosaic above the pond.
