This national museum is devoted to Marc Chagall's religious, mystical and spiritual art. The museum was created when Chagall was still alive, after he gave the state his series of 17 paintings illustrating the biblical message - paintings inspired by Jewish folklore and painted on vast canvasses. Chagall himself donated his preparatory sketches, and the museum's collection has grown steadily since then. The artist provided detailed instructions about the gardens surrounding the museum, and created a mosaic that overlooks the pond and the stained glasses that decorate the concert hall. A small bookshop at the entrance sells books about Chagall and prints of his work.

The Chagall Museum is located in a wealthy area on a hill in Nice. The modern single-storey building is set in a quiet garden with white walls, green trees and cool flowers on a sunny summer day. Create a cool feeling, and there is plenty of light in the room. Architect Andr Hermant worked with Auguste Perret and Le Corbusier. The form of the museum reflects strong functionalism, but there is no lack of beauty in simplicity.
Mark. Chagall's work is full of colors, you can see a lot of blue and red in his museum. Chagall himself participated in the design of the museum, installed a huge mosaic in the museum, designed the stained glass in the concert hall, confirmed the arrangement of the garden, and selected each painting in the museum - the main works are The first two chapters of the Bible, Genesis and Exodus, and Song of Solomon. Chagall hopes that his most important works on the Bible are in the same place, so the museum is there.
Picasso once said, "After the death of Matisse, Chagall became the only person in the world who really knows the color." The Chagall Museum is located in the beautiful town of Nice in the south of France, the English name National Marc Chagall Museum.
