An art lover at its root

The MACM is the fruit of a private initiative by Christian Levett, an English businessman and an enthusiastic art collector from a very young age. In 2009, he discovered Mougins, and literally fell in love. He purchased a house here and, with a huge amount of work, transformed it into a true frame for hundreds of works of art since 2011. A collection of unique antiquities grouping together sculptures, vases, jewellery and coins, as well as the largest private collection of Greco-Roman weapons and armour in the world! You can also find paintings, drawings and sculptures there from famous modern and contemporary artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Dufy, Cézanne, Rodin, Dali, Rubens, Sosno and Andy Warhol, to name just a few.
In making these treasures accessible to the public, Christian Levett allows visitors to go back in time and history from the Egypt of the Pharaohs to the contemporary era, via the vibrant ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome.
Over the four storeys that make up the museum, works from different periods live together in harmony thanks to insightful and timeless stage setting. The Blue Venus by Yves Klein rubs shoulders with the Birth of Venus by Andy Warhol; a bust of the Roman emperor Caracalla sits beside a drawing of an ancient bust by Henri Matisse.
