It is the most important collection of Léger’s works in the world, which includes many of his masterpieces. Fernand Léger is one of the most notable painters of the 20th century. He excelled in many areas (figurative painting, futurism, cubism) and his style has such...More

Hidden in the green hills of Biot, is this absolutely stunning building entirely devoted to Fernand Léger, the famous French painter, that lived from 1881 to 1955 . The exhibition starts with his early, impressionistic oil paintings moving on to his later work, his sculptures...More

This most exceptional museum on the work of Léger is actually worth the journey. The exterior is decorated with huge mosaics by Léger. They give the building its character. Very convincing collection. You really will get an overview on Léger's work.

Spend hours in Leger's world, full of colors, by the way his paints are so similar to an Egyptian artist Salah Gaheen.

While it would probably be even nicer on a glorious summer's day, the Leger Museum is an impressive collection in a great spot with a well-designed building. It was *very* quiet when we visited, though. We got a little confused as one staircase was out...More

Fernand Leger was a contemporary of Picasso, Matisse, Magritte and Marcel Duchamp - yet he isn't as well-known as these artists. But his art is certainly up there with these big names. He made a huge contribution to modern art in the first half of...More

If you don't know the work of Fernard Leger, this is the place to discover it. A totally civilised museum in a beautiful setting which does all it can to show Leger's progression from post-impressionism through Cubism to tubism. Suggestions: buy the catalogue and take...More

I don't know where you're staying. In case it's Nice, like I did, I'd tell you to go by train to Biot. When you get there, take the bus number 10. The closest stop to Léger's museum is named after the artist. There's no way... More
