Marc Chagall was a Russian-French painter born in Witebsk that today belongs to Belarus. He was travelling much and living at St. Petersburg, Paris, Berlin; in Mexico and the USA. He is seen as an expressionist and you can easily recognize his works because of his special colorful style and the symbols he continuously uses; elements coming from his hometown, the circus world and the bible. One of these is the goat that you can discover in many of his works, sometimes just as a tiny additional element, sometimes in focus playing the violin.

If you want to enjoy some of his works you can do so at the Musée National Marc Chagall of Nice. It was opened in 1973 and focused on his bible-themed works. It’s a pleasure to be there even though there are only two rooms full of his works. The museum is well-design and also offers a nice coffee bar in the garden – but you first have to get there: from the city center of Nice it is on the other side of a motorway. Best take the bus to the bus stop Musée Chagall.
