Musee d'Art Classique de Mougins

This small-town museum in the south of France specializes in ancient art (including one of the world's largest private collections of arms and armor) but with an eye to relate the ancient to the modern. Works by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Dufy, Cezanne, Rodin, Dali, Andy Warhol, Marc Quinn, Antony Gormley, and Damien Hirst are interspersed with the antiquities. Alas, the show of chocolate sculptures, which included works in chocolate inspired by classical marbles, Egyptian sarcophagi, and Roman armor has closed, but there is still a lot to see at Mougins. Choose any of the collection galleries to see selections: Egypt; Greece & Rome; Classical Art; Armory; Greek and Roman coins. The modern stuff is lurking in Classical Art, including a terra cotta vase by Keith Haring, inspired by Greek redware, or Andy Warhol's print, Birth of Venus, both created in the 1980s.
