I am alive, I am in Nice.
If you were to look for the geographical heart of French art, you would naturally turn to Paris, the country's artistic capital. But the south of France, particularly the area around Nice, has also been a fertile cradle of artistic creation. Masters such as Pablo PICASSO, Henri MATISSE, Fernand LÉGER and Joan MIRO were all seduced by the côte d’Azur and left major works in the region. Following in their footsteps came Yves KLEIN, Fernandez ARMAN, Martial RAYSSE, then BEN, Bernar VENET, CÉSAR, Claude VIALLAT, Noël DOLLA and others spawning the great movements of French contemporary art : Fluxus, Supports/Surfaces, and the New Realism.
