This allows to identify the works of Matisse but also of a new generation. The building is very nice and the works can be admired in the calm (and its stained glass Windows) or in the excitement of the great Hall of the DRC; The location
Matisse put French early 20th century painting on the fauvist trail. Excellent, low priced museum for the quality it offers. It puts Matisse in perspective with his contempories.
Interesting museum of Matisse's work. Nice public gardens.
