Lonely Planet review
In a gracefully converted 16th-century chapel, this small but famous art museum showcases an impressive collection of modern art infused with that legendary Côte d'Azur light. Pointillist Paul Signac bought a house in St-Tropez in 1892 and introduced others to the area. The museum's collection includes his St-Tropez, Le Quai (1899) and Vue de St-Tropez, Coucher de Soleil au Bois de Pins (1896), which hangs juxtaposed with a window-view of contemporary St-Tropez.
Vuillard, Bonnard and Maurice Denis (the self-named 'Nabis' group) have a room to themselves. Fauvist collections include Derain and Matisse, who spent the summer of 1904 here. Cubists George Braque and Picasso are also represented.
