Annonciade Museum

Art on the port

When I’m tired of the crowds, or just looking for a respite from the hot sun and the over-touristed streets of summertime, I love to duck into this little museum on the port that opened in 1955.

It’s one of the best kept museum secrets of the French Riviera, with masterpieces that recall Saint-Tropez when it was was an active center of the avant-garde art in the early twentieth century, thanks to artist Paul Signac who first discovered the town and fell head over heels in 1892. Who can blame him?!

Signac eventually bought a house in the village, which he turned into a studio, and invited some talented artist pals to join him, such as Cross, Matisse, Derain, Marquet and others.

The petit museum is housed inside The Chapel of Our Lady of the Annunciation, which was built in 1510, and boasts a collection of works ranging between 1890 and 1950.

Though it’s a small space, the major masterpieces here reflect on the many renowned artists who found their muse in the French Riviera, and particularly in Saint-Tropez.
