Jean Cocteau Museum - Séverin Wunderman Collection

Interesting
This museum, the second dedicated to Cocteau in the town of Menton, opened in 2011, thanks to an exceptional donation from Séverin Wunderman (1938-2008). The American had accumulated works by Cocteau and other masters of modern art (Picasso, Modigliani, De Chirico, Miró etc), as well as a collection linked to Sarah Bernhardt. The exhibitions divide the immense collection into themes. Built on the seafront, the building designed by Rudy Riciotti is surrounded by a spectacular façade adorned with white cut-out forms.
