This museum exhibits works by the Nice School and the movements that preceded and followed it. Nouveau Réalisme is shown through artists like Arman, César and Spoerri, with pride of place given to Yves Klein (1928-62) and his blue monochromes. The neo-Dada Fluxus movement is represented by Ben. Developments in abstraction are illustrated by Supports/Surfaces (Vaillat, Pagès and Dezeuze), and the return to figuration by Garouste and the comic-strip style of Combas and Hervé di Rosa.
