The former home of the iconic French artist Henri Matisse has hit the market for $2.69 million.
Located in Nice, France, on the stunning French Riviera, the two-bedroom, four-bathroom apartment occupies more than 1,700 square feet.
Matisse has long been regarded, along with Pablo Picasso, as one of the the most influential artists of the 20th century — one of the figures who best helped define the revolutionary developments in the visual arts.
He lived in the apartment, located on a high floor of the famous Régina in Cimiez, for 10 years.
Built in 1897, the flat was fairly new when Matisse lived there.
Nestled in the heart of the neighborhood’s historic district, the unit once also housed the painter’s studio.
With four balconies and a bow window, the residence offers a panoramic view of the city, the Mediterranean Sea and the Bay of Angels, the listing notes.
This property also comes with a cellar and a double garage. Features also include a library and an intercom system.
Building amenities include a fulltime caretaker, a swimming pool, a park, a tennis court, a playground and a gym.
Côte d’Azur Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
Matisse was born in Le Cateau-Cambrésis, France in 1869. He died in Nice, at the age of 84 on Nov. 3, 1954.
Some of his most notable works include “Blue Nudes,” “Woman with a Hat” and “The Snail” collage.
