Musée Cantini

Interesting
In a town house dating from the late 17C, this little modern art museum concentrates on works from the period 1900-1960, and particularly Fauvism, early Cubism, Expressionism and Abstraction. Here you can see Marquet, Derain, Dufy, Masson, Brauner, Balthus, Giacometti... and nine drawings by Antonin Artaud (a Marseille man). The museum also organises temporary exhibitions, which are very popular events on the city's art scene.
