The collection is of interest for the overview that it offers, from the first paintings in 1890 to the gouache drawings that Matisse produced at the end of his life, and for its presentation of all the techniques the artist used to express his art. The museum also houses the artist’s personal objects, thus offering a more private view of his work.
