The Museum of Fine Arts is located in Nice, west of downtown. It is located in a magnificent aristocratic residence built for the Ukrainian princess Elizabeth Kotschoubey in 1878. It presents a Mannerist Genoese style and it received the title of “monument” for its facade. The museum's collection consists of a filing status of which Napoleon III ordered the exposure after annexing Nice to France in 1860. The collection is constantly updated by private donations. After being moved in different locations, if finally found a location in the current building in Beaumettes. The museum is organized on two levels. On the first floor you can find works that go from primitive ages to the  XVIII century and there is also a room dedicated to the Van Loo Dynasty. A great staircase opens the way to the second floor which gives space to sculptures and paintings from the XIX century. There are also many  works from the Impressionist and Post-impressionist movements, of which Claude Monet's “falaise de fécamp” of 1897 is one major example.
